Capcom Confirms Data Breach

Capcom, the Japanese game maker behind the popular “Resident Evil” and “Street Fighter” games, has confirmed a data breach. Hackers stole customer data and files from Capcom's internal network following a ransomware attack earlier in the month.

In a statement, Capcom said data on as many as 350,000 customers may have been stolen, including names, addresses, phone numbers and, in some cases, dates of birth. Capcom said the hackers also stole the company's own internal financial data and human resources files on current and former employees. According to Capcom, the hackers also took “confidential corporate information,” like documents on business partners, sales and development.

Capcom has said that no credit card information was taken, as payments are handled by a third-party company.
