The Japanese videogame giant Bandai Namco has reportedly become the victim of a ransomware attack by a group that style themselves ALPHV, but is also known by the name BlackCat. The news has been reported by two malware-watching groups, and was first announced by Vx-underground alongside an image from ALPHV’s darkweb blog claiming the attack (thanks, Kotaku (opens in new tab)).

Bandai Namco has not responded to a request for comment. Until the publisher acknowledges the hack or other sources emerge, the story remains unconfirmed. I also contacted the two malware-watching organisations who initially reported the hack, and will update with any additional information.
