DRM maker Denuvo has suffered an embarrassing data leak after confidental information was accidentally made available on its website. It turns out several directories were made public, allowing potential game pirates a glimpse into the inner workings of the most difficult DRM to crack yet.
Denuvo’s customer support email directory was left exposed; showing how the company does business. There isn’t actually all that much to see, aside from requests for the product from CAPCOM and Google. Then there are the hundreds of angry emails from would be pirates who are more than a little ticked off that someone is using DRM.
It’s difficult to say just how much of Denuvo’s inner workings have been revealed, but it looks like most of the files have already been downloaded. There’s at least one directory that contains a Denuvo slide presentation, which doesn’t actually reveal anything we don’t know about the company.
Denuvo has been having a rough 2017, with its supposedly “uncrackable” DRM beginning to show weaknesses. What used to take months of hard work of cracking has been reduced to only five days with the most recent Resident Evil 7 release. This probably won’t be the end of the company, but it’s reputation is going to take a massive hit from this oversight.
