The Esports Entertainment Association has today confirmed that an unidentified body has beached the ESA servers last year and published a trove of ESA user data online after their attempts to ransom the data were not met.
In December, an actor asked for a bounty of $100,000 or threatened to leak the player data and tech data.
The company has responded saying it will work to improve security systems as well as confirming that has alerted both users and authorities.
ESA has claimed not to store any payment info on the server and has confirmed that credit card data appears to be safe. However, usernames, emails, private messages, its, phone numbers, passwords as well as secret questions have been leaked.
