Internal Roblox employee documents posted online by hacker

A hacker has posted internal documents belonging to a Roblox employee online as part of an attempt to extort money from the company behind the massively popular online game. 

As reported by Motherboard, the 4GB upload contains stolen files that “relate to some of the most popular games and creators on the platform, and also include personal information of multiple individuals.” 

“These stolen documents were illegally obtained as part of an extortion scheme that we refused to cooperate with. We acted quickly upon learning of the incident, engaged independent experts to complement our information security team and have tuned our systems to seek to detect and prevent similar attempts.” said Roblox to Motherboard in response to the leak. 

It is unclear at this time if user data or passwords have been compromised by the data breach, so if you’re feeling worried about your Roblox account then you should change your password just to be safe.
