For several hours early Thursday morning, the Deus Ex Web site, user forum, and Eidos.com were unreachable. For a brief period late Wednesday evening, the sites displayed a defacement banner that read “Owned by Chippy1337″ (click screen shot at right for a larger version), along with several names and hacker handles of those supposedly responsible for the break-in.

KrebsOnSecurity.com obtained an archived copy of the attackers’ online chatter as they were covering their tracks from compromising the sites. A hacker using the alias “ev0″ discusses having defaced the sites and downloading some 9,000 resumes from Eidos. ev0 and other hackers discuss leaking “src,” which may refer to source code for Deus Ex or other Eidos games. In a separate conversation, the hackers also say they have stolen information on at least 80,000 Deus Ex users and that they plan to release the data on file-sharing networks.

Neither Eidos nor its parent company Square Enix Co. could be immediately reached for comment. (This may not be the first time Eidos was breached: In a story I wrote earlier this year, I detailed how hackers on an underground criminal forum claimed to be selling access to Eidos’ customer database).

I always hate how articles refer to Anonymous as some sort of cohesive group. This article mention he's a "splinter" from then, but that's not true. Whoever the guy is, he's exactly what Anonymous is.

If they release source for any Eidos games they're going to get straight up fucked, it'll be like the half life 2 source all over again.

This is getting stupid though, there is no reason to do this other than to be complete assholes.

The lulz, I guess.

Eventually someone is going to try this on a company with competent security and have it blow up in their face. Hackers don't do so well in the pen, which means that other people will get to enjoy the schadenfreude when they get caught.

hmm...this is oddly coincidental
the hacked page layout is the same as the first anonop hack.
An "evo" was also evolved, and the leader of the anonops hack was also called "ryan"

Uh... Learn what? Hacking occurs. Why would Eidos learn from Sony attack? I guess Sony should have learned from EVERY other single attack that's occurred until this point? As well as all the other attacks that have occurred against other companies?

Tsk tsk.

Thats the biggest flaw in AnonOps. Anyone can claim they are Anonymous and no way to counter it.

Well the op mentioned something about selling the customer database. Trying to remember Eidos, has my e-mail or something. Nope, don't recall ever joining an Eidos forum.
