Latest Hacker Target: Codemasters

Four days before the North American street date for DiRT 3, password and login data for Codemasters' website was posted online, the developer said, making it the latest name in games to suffer an online attack.

Codemasters told GamesIndustry.biz that it discovered the breach on Friday, took its website completely offline and repaired a security hole. The developer said someone tried to gain administrative access to the corporate website, and the attack "may have allowed alterations to our company website."

Codemasters says that "while some staff admin names were obtained, passwords were all encrypted".
