It sounds like gold farming shenanigans, I don't think we need to be worried.

The cyber security firm said it found evidence the hackers attempted to steal proprietary software code, possibly to develop pirated versions of online games, or to steal in-game currency that can be converted into real money.
Nothing new here, move along..

This has been done since the dawn on big MMO games, from small F2P asian based to the top games that forgot to closedown/secure their networks.
