January 12, 2021 Capcom has issued an update on its November data breach.
Capcom confirmed in November that it was the subject of a ransomware attack, which compromised a wide array of the company’s private information. The breach occurred on November 2, and on November 4 Capcom issued a press release which said “at present there is no indication that any customer information was breached”. However, the company said later in November, that some player information was among the compromised data, and today has updated the total number of potentially compromised information affects around 400,000 people.
If you’re reading this English-language news article, however, you can breathe easier. Capcom says it has no evidence that North American Capcom store and esports website information has been even possibly compromised. That was previously the only customer information outside of Japan suspected to be at risk.
However, the company has now confirmed that 16,415 people, including business partners, current employees, former employees, and their family members, have had some sort of data compromised. That’s up from nine data breaches confirmed back in November.
