A Dell server that hosted the popular YouTube gaming channel, Runescape, has been hacked and no one is yet being held accountable for the breach, the company said on Thursday.
The security breach was reported to Dell on Sunday, and the company has not yet made an official announcement about it, a company spokesperson told The Times.
The incident has raised questions about the company’s ability to keep its servers running.
“The only thing that Dell is able to do is maintain and maintain an uninterrupted internet connection for Runescape.
The servers were not breached, and there was no data theft,” the spokesperson said.”
Dell has implemented a comprehensive security architecture to protect Runescape users, staff and the public.
Our security team will continue to investigate the breach and work with the authorities to provide a full response as quickly as possible.”
Dell, which makes computers, servers and peripherals, has around 10 million active users on its online gaming platform.
The company said in February that it was shutting down Runescape and removing its servers from the internet.
The company said it had fixed the issue by Friday.
