    A hacking and ransomware group known as Egregor has allegedly obtained the source code to Watch Dogs: Legion, just two weeks away from its release date, along with a litany of files from developer and publisher Crytek.

    Egregor has created a ransomware program of the same name that appears to be based on another popular program, Sekhmet. Ransomware, for those who don’t know, is a type of malware that steals or encrypts a victim's data and will not return or decrypt it unless the victim pays - or plays PUBG in one strange instance from 2018. The added threat is often that this stolen data will be leaked to the public if demands are not met, which is what Egregor is apparently threatening with Ubisoft’s Watch Dogs: Legion.
