Today’s story: “I’ll be on my way to work.”
Today, the day after a major hack in which the attackers took over an account on the popular trading platform Dayz, Dayz co-founder and CEO Jeff Garzik tweeted that he’d be on his way to a meeting in New York.
“My time at Dayz has been amazing, I can’t wait to start working on the game and working with my team again,” he wrote.
“I’ve also got a lot of exciting things in the works, including new features for Dayz that will bring new players to our platform and expand our community.”
Garzik did not say when he’d return to work, but the timing could not have been more fortuitous.
The day after Dayz was hacked, Garzik posted a video to the Dayz subreddit where he talked about his plans to create a new social gaming platform that he described as “the future of gaming.”
In the video, Garzzik said that he would be “on my way” to a Dayz meeting, saying that he’ll be “at the table.”
The Dayz team, which has been plagued with problems in recent months, released a statement today, saying it had “never been breached, we’ve never had any issue with anyone, and the hacker was not affiliated with Dayz.
The hacker used the same credentials as the hacker who breached Dayz earlier this year.”
The statement said that Dayz is “a fully decentralized gaming platform” that “can be used for anything from a game to an open source social network.”
The statement did not mention whether or not the hacker had access to the server hosting the hacked account.
It is unclear whether the hacker used a different account, or used another password, to gain access to Dayz’s servers.
The hackers claim to have gained access to a number of Dayz servers over the past few weeks, including one in California, where they reportedly used the username “dayz” in the hacked accounts.
On Monday, a DayZ developer tweeted that they were working with law enforcement to identify the hacker.
Garzik said the developer had reached out to law enforcement and was working to identify “the individual responsible for the breach.”
On Monday night, a video of the hacker appearing to discuss a plan to hack Dayz went viral.
“The hacker has been talking about this,” the hacker said, before asking: “What will you do?”
Dayz said in a statement that it is “working with law enforcers” to investigate the hacking, adding that the company is “currently aware of no evidence that DayZ has been accessed by this malicious individual.”
