Razer Gold Data Breach Investigation

Migliaccio & Rathod LLP is investigating Razer, for a data breach related to its Razer Gold digital currency, a monetary device used in various video games.  Razer recently began investigating the breach after a hacker attempted to sell the data for $100,000. The data stolen includes the source code, database, encryption keys, and backend access logins for Razer.com, the main website of the company. On July 9, 2023, Razer posted a tweet that it was looking into the data breach.

Razer’s full statement was as follows:

“We were alerted to a potential hack on July 9, 2023 impacting Razer Gold. Upon learning about the breach, the team immediately conducted a thorough review of all Razer’s websites and have taken all necessary steps to secure our platforms. Razer is still in the midst of investigations, and we remain committed to ensuring the digital safety and security of all our customers. Once investigations have concluded, Razer anticipates that we will report this matter to the relevant authorities.”

All of the information stolen is likely valuable and dangerous. In previous data breaches, victims of data theft have noticed identity theft attempts ranging from fraudulent charges on bank accounts or credit cards, to unauthorized credit card applications, to medical services or government services ordered in their name, to their information being posted on the dark web, to a massive uptick in the number of spam text messages, calls and emails received.
