Epic Games has released a statement following an alleged ransomware hack, confirming that there is zero evidence regarding it. Earlier today, rumors of an alleged hack shocked the gaming community, but it appears there is zero substance to it.

This is what the Fortnite developer released in a statement regarding the rumor.

“We are investigating but there is currently zero evidence that these claims are legitimate. Mogilievich has not contacted Epic or provided any proof of the veracity of these allegations. When we saw these allegations, which were a screenshot of a darkweb webpage in a Tweet from a third party, we began investigating within minutes and reached out to Mogilevich for proof. Mogilevich has not responded. The closest thing we have seen to a response is this Tweet, where they allegedly ask for $15k and “proof of funds” to hand over the purported data.”

To remind you, a ransomware gang named Mogilevich claimed to have hacked some sensitive information from Epic Games. The group claimed to have nearly 200 gigabytes of data, which includes email addresses, passwords, and other sensitive details. Fortunately, this didn’t end up being a legitimate threat to the security of players’ accounts.

Due to this, you have nothing to worry about regarding your account. However, if you haven’t updated your Epic Games account password in a long time, we advise you to do it to improve the security of your account. On top of this, make sure to enable a two-factor authentication for your Fortnite account, as this will add an additional layer of security.
