Razer investigates potential data breach, resets user sessions

Gaming gear company Razer reacted to recent rumors of a massive data breach with a short statement on Twitter, letting users know that they started an investigation into the matter.

Information about a potential data breach at the company emerged on Saturday, when someone posted on a hacker forum that they had stolen the source code, database, encryption keys, and backend access logins for Razer.com, the company’s main website.

The user offered to sell that data for $100,000 worth of Monero cryptocurrency and urged interested individuals to contact him directly to close the deal.

BleepingComputer has contacted Razer to ask about the validity of the data samples the posted on the hacker forum but we have not received a response at publishing time.
