Publisher 2K warns users against opening emails or clicking links from the support page after confirming that the victim has been hacked.
2K Support itself has been compromised, so this time it’s not a spoof account sending fake emails. The hacker would send emails with dangerous links using the legitimate email address. The 2K Support site is offline as a result.
If users did click on links, 2K recommends immediately changing all passwords stored in web browsers (such as Chrome auto-fill), installing anti-virus software, and enabling MFA where possible.

The 2K Supports Twitter account, which has been preserved, shared the news. The publisher also reminds users that it never asks for their password or other personal information.
There have been a lot of cyber attacks lately. Rockstar Games saw around 90 videos of Grand Theft Auto 6 gameplay leaked after falling victim to a hack.
