DayZ sadism extends to real life as servers are hacked

S. Prell, @SamPrell

It's generally expected that within the confines of the game, DayZ players will be jerks whenever possible. However, such attitudes aren't limited to online: Developer Bohemia Interactive is currently investigating an attack on their servers, as reported by Rock Paper Shotgun. While a Reddit report of the hack claims that the entire DayZ source code was stolen, Bohemia only told RPS that no user data was affected.

"We have recently detected an attack on some of our servers," Bohemia told RPS. "The precise nature and scope of this attack is currently being extensively investigated. There were no user data on any of the servers. Current development goals and schedules for our games will not be affected by this attack. More information will follow as our investigation continues."

The news, much like a zombie outbreak, comes at with unfortunate timing: DayZ passed 2 million in sales less than two weeks ago. No good deed goes unpunished, it seems.
