Although many game users and hackers believed it was indecipherable due to its dual protection with Digital.AI and Social Club, it has finally been announced that Red Dead Redemption 2 (RDR2) has been hacked, making it available on various torrent forums. The information has been confirmed by CrackWatch, a platform dedicated to tracking the status of video games in terms of piracy.
The creators of RDR2 tried to innovate in video game protection by creating a sophisticated combination of DRM, similar to the measures implemented in the latest Ubisoft releases. This mechanism allowed keeping the game safe from hackers for almost a full year, although hacking groups have finally achieved their goal.
This is a worrying fact not only because it has compromised the security of RDR2, since the industry believes that employing similar methods, piracy groups will be able to compromise other video games protected by the same mechanism. This attack, known as bypass crack, is one of the most important resources available to threat actors.
On Ubisoft, multiple games could be exposed by this attack method, including Watch Dogs Legion, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, among others, which use Denuvo security technology and in some cases VMProtect. The number of games committed over the last few days could be updated as soon as possible.
