Just right after admitting to a ransomware attack that messed up CD Projekt Red’s servers and files, the source codes for their games are now up online and more than ready to be auctioned off. Reports of the leak have been making rounds in the internet, with the source codes being auctioned off with actual proof.
Cybersecurity firm KELA, which specializes in providing threat intelligence to companies based on analyses of dark web websites and communities, says it has reason to believe the auctions are, in fact, legitimate. KELA says the starting price of the auction is $1 million, with higher bids in increments of $500,000 and a buy-it-now price of $7 million. Only users who deposit 0.1 bitcoin can participate, which is why Kivilevich believes the hackers are serious about hosting the auction and that the material for sale is likely legitimate because it ensures nobody participating in the auction is trying to scam the sellers.
