Ubisoft has reportedly been hacked by the same group that was behind the recent attack on Nvidia - a group known as LAPSUS$. The game company has stated that no personal information was stolen; however, Ubisoft has also carried out a "company-wide password reset" as a measure of caution against the incident.

LAPSUS$, the group behind a recently reported hack on Nvidia, has now also taken credit for the hack of Ubisoft. The incident resulted in a disruption of the game publisher's services, but according to Ubisoft, the sensitive and personal information of users was not compromised due to the hack. However, as a precautionary measure, the publisher reset all the passwords within the company.

This hack follows the recent cyberattack on Nvidia, which ended up with the perpetrators posting private employee and business-related information online. Furthermore, Samsung reported that its organization's data and source code for numerous Galaxy devices were stolen, too. These incidents were both purportedly carried out by the hacking group, LAPSUS$.

LAPSUS$ has also declared itself guilty of the attack on Ubisoft and has stated that it did not go after personal user information. Ubisoft has not yet validated these claims, and the company's experts are currently investigating the attack, although gaming services are seemingly back to functioning normally.
