Back in February, the attackers breached the source codes for all the games using the Hello Kitty ransomware. The hackers had listed the stolen source code on the Russian-language forum. However, the auction listing was removed by the site claiming that they have received a satisfactory offer. The deal was made on the condition of no further distribution.
