R6DB is an online fan database that offers Rainbow Six Siege Player Statistics. It went offline this weekend and the hackers wiped the server and demanded a ransom.

The event struck their servers on Saturday and some automated bot reached their servers according to the company report and wiped the database. The remote link between Development Machine and Postgress Database server was held opened.

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, so they don’t have to think about privacy issues. They lost all of their historical data essentially.

Many accounts are gone, R6db says, We can re-index them while looking for them, but that’s a step we can not do ourselves. With time, they will fill up again, but the past is gone.

“Progressions (aka historical data, aka charts) are lost They’ll fill up again over time, but the past is gone,” R6DB said. “PC only aliases are half-lost. We still have some older data, but about a months worth of aliases is lost.”

R6DB has decided to completely deploy a new server because the old server has been affected, they’ve made the new server online, but the restore of the database is still in progress.
