Newsbrief: Following rumors that Bohemia's popular survival game DayZ has had its source code stolen by hackers, the company has admitted that its servers were attacked -- although it is not yet ready to provide more details.

After a Reddit thread suggested that the source code for DayZ had been extracted via an SQL injection, Bohemia has now told Rock Paper Shotgun that it is currently investigating what has happened.

"We have recently detected an attack on some of our servers, the precise nature and scope of this attack is currently being extensively investigated," reads the statement. "There were no user data on any of the servers. Current development goals and schedules for our games will not be affected by this attack."

The company says that it will divulge more information as it comes.
