Capcom, the Japanese game maker behind the "Resident Evil" and "Street Fighter" franchises, has confirmed that hackers stole customer data and files from its internal network following a ransomware attack earlier in the month.

Capcom reveals that the incident took place on November 2, 2020, and was perpetrated by an organization called Ragnar Locker, which was demanding ransom money in an attack on encrypted data on the company servers.

In an update on its investors website, the company says that an investigation is ongoing, but explained that, as of November 16, it could confirm that sales reports, financial information, and nine employees' personal information had been compromised.

Thankfully, financial information wasn't accessed, with Capcom explaining, "None of the at-risk data contains credit card information. All online transactions etc. are handled by a third-party service provider, and as such Capcom does not maintain any such information internally."

"Capcom offers its sincerest apologies for any complications and concerns that this may bring to its potentially impacted customers as well as to its many stakeholders," the Osaka-based game maker stated.
