“Apex Legends” is hacked. No risk such as personal information
A large-scale hack has occurred in the battle royale game “Apex Legends”, and the developer Respawn Entertainment has begun to respond.
On July 4, 2021, reports of “Apex Legends” playlists and messages unrelated to the game being displayed on the screen after the game began to appear on SNS and other media.
The message protests the operating system of the company’s game “Titanfall”, and the URL of the website “SAVETITANFALL.COM” launched by fans of the game is pasted. It was said that it was.
Actually, “Titanfall” has been in a state where it can not be played due to a hacking attack on the PC version. Therefore, it is generally expected that the hacking attack that occurred in “Apex Legends” involves a person who is dissatisfied with the operation of “Titanfall”. Of course, it could also be an attack to trap Titanfall fans.
There is also a report that “Apex Legends” can no longer be played due to a hacking attack, and Respawn Entertainment announced that it will respond early. In the morning of July 5th, it was announced that it would take several hours to update the servers and apply them to all servers.
In addition, it is said that personal information and accounts were not leaked due to this hacking attack.
