The publisher of NBA 2K is now also affected by a hack.

After Rockstar, Take Two subsidiary 2K Games was also affected. As the publisher of games like Borderlands recently posted on Twitter, its support page has also been hacked:

In this regard, they point the finger at malicious emails: “The unauthorized party sent messages to some players containing a malicious link. Please do not open emails or links received from 2K Games support account.”

what can you do now

If you clicked on a link, 2K recommends the following security measures:

  • Reset all your saved passwords in the browser
  • If possible, enable two-factor authentication on your accounts
  • Scan your device with antivirus software
  • Check your email account settings for changes

They also point out – for possible cases in the future – that they will never ask you for passwords or other personal data in an email.

The website has been taken offline at this time and 2K will respond again when the site is up and emails are safe again.
