The Deus Ex site and were defaced and taken down yesterday when a splinter group of the hacker organisation Anonymous broke through Square Enix security to steal the personal data of more than 80,000 registered users.

According to IRC chat logs of the hackers' conversations unearthed by Krebs On Security, they plan to release the information on file sharing networks, and are recorded discussing whether to release the "src" as well. It's unclear whether they mean the website source code, or that of one of Eidos' games.
