ESEA posted on Twitter over the weekend to say "We have been working around the clock to further fortify security and will bring our website online shortly when that next round is complete."

The network has advised users their details may have been compromised in the hack, with leaked details including; usernames, first and last names, email addresses, dates of birth, phone numbers, Steam IDs, Xbox IDs, PSN IDs and bcrypt hashes.

ESEA users on Reddit confirmed that player information was discoverable in the leaked data.
