A next gen hacker with the handle SuperDaE has leaked treasure trove gaming info on the internet after threats of being arrested. The hacker was behind multiple data breaches at Sony, Microsoft, Epic, Valve, Blizzard, and other gaming companies.
After being sought after by law enforcement agencies over these cyberattacks, SuperDaE has released the 1.7TB treasure trove on the internet. The files were being released on superdae.se, which at this moment seems to be out of service.
The released files contain materials related to Gears of War and Unreal Engine from Epic, World of Warcraft from Blizzard, Sleeping Dogs from United Front Games and others. The files also contain “software development kits for the PS4, Xbox One and Wii U as well as possible old code for unreleased games such as Company of Heroes 2 and WWE 14. The Epic directory includes folders for Unreal Engine 4 and UE4 projects called Fortnite (an announced game), Kilo, Lima and Orion.”
The files being released were, however, encrypted, and released as “insurance”. According to SuperDaE, originally an Australian citizen with the first name Dylan, these files can “change the video game industry for better.”
According to Kotaku, SuperDaE is a 17-year old minor and face eight legal charges relating to child porn and dishonesty.
