Resistance Site, Forums Down; Hacking Alleged

Visitors to, the official site for the Resistance franchise of PS3 games, say the site was serving up malware yesterday. One of them alerted Insomniac Games, and now the entire site has been taken offline for maintenance.

The hacking and malware allegations could not be immediately verified with Insomniac. Kotaku has reached out to an Insomniac representative; any statement the studio makes will be updated here.

This site outage comes a week after an attack and defacement of the Steam forums that brought them down for nearly five days. Worse, Valve later said that a database containing user information, including encrypted credit card numbers, had been exposed in the attack and advised users to monitor their credit card activity and change passwords elsewhere if it was the same as their Steam Forum login.
