2K Games Support Desk Hacked, Phishing Emails Sent To Certain Players
Following Rockstar's GTA 6 leaks, a fellow Take-Two brand is facing a security threat. 2K Games took to Twitter to put out a warning message: One of the company's customer support help desks was hacked and malicious links were sent to certain players.

"Please do not open any emails or click on any links that you receive from the 2K Games support account." 2K said. If you have already clicked on a suspicious link, 2K recommends that you reset passwords stored in web browsers, enable multi-factor authentication, run an antivirus program, and check account settings to see if any forwarding rules have been newly added.
2K additionally stated that it will never ask for your password or personal info. The support portal will remain offline until the security issue is resolved, and 2K will notify players when it will become available for use again.
It's unknown as of this time who or what organization is behind the 2K security breach. Rockstar notably suffered a security breach recently too, but not on the customer-facing side. The hacker group, allegedly Lapsus$--who Uber claims is also responsible for its security breach--released GTA 6 development footage.
