R6DB is a fan-powered online database that provides player statistics for Rainbow Six Siege. It went offline this weekend and the database wiped by the hackers and asked for a Ransom.

The incident took down their servers on Saturday and according to the companies statement some automated bot hit their servers and wiped the database.They kept the remote connection open from Development machine to Postgress Database server.

R6DB said they are currently working in the restoration process and they are not sure how many dates they can retrieve. Due to the hectic and unplanned September-migration, we didn’t have everything locked down yet, which led to this situation.

They don’t store any personal data’s so no need to be concerned about privacy issues.They basically lost all of their historical data.
