The last days have not been simple for the Virtual Realms studio. Last week, the developer's infrastructure was the subject of an unauthorized intrusion: the accounts of the players of Celtic Heroes are compromised and the studio was therefore forced the servers of his mobile MMORPG. In the stride, last Thursday, it was Warhammer Odyssey (the other mobile MMORPG of the developer) that was targeted with the same consequences - a closing of the servers the time to identify the security flaw, from the colmate and restore players' data.
The operation is nevertheless complex: Celtic Heroes has certainly been revived this weekend but has been the subject of denial of service (DDOS) and not only the Warhammer servers: Odyssey have still not been relaunched, But the mobile MMORPG has been removed from the App Store and Google Play to avoid attracting new players to an inaccessible title.
Today on Discord, the developer brings some clarification: the intrusion is manifestly more impressive than intensified. The source code and the Warhammer databases: Odyssey have been stolen and have been publicly disseminated this weekend. If the studio says it is still evaluating the damage, Virtual Realms also ensures that players' accounts are not compromised - Warhammer: Odyssey uses the decentralized solutions of Google Play, Apple iCloud, and Facebook ** and therefore does not storing user data on pirated servers.
Warhammer's servers: Odyssey will still be closed at least today and tomorrow, the time to deploy the necessary security measures. When the MMORPG will be restarted, the studio specifies that a Back_ _roll will be operated on the players accounts bringing the characters to their state as they were before the security breach. Players who would have made expenses during this period will be fully refunded. Once the servers will be restarted, Warhammer: Odyssey can reintegrate mobile shops. In the meantime, the developer asks players not to help publicly broadcast the source code or MMORPG data.
