Denuvo has been in the headlines lately with the DRM-maker being a part of some of the biggest games of the last 12 months, and now the company is faking something very different - with a massive chunk of private web-form messages being leaked.

The first messages appeared on 4chan, with the messages including contact between game developers and Denuvo. The 11MB file has messages from Denuvo's public contact form, with messages from all the way back to April 25, 2014 - furthermore, it seems like their web database content is totally unsecured, with root directors for "fileadmin" and "logs" opened at the time of writing.

There are also messages from game developers like 343 Industries asking Denuvo about applying their DRM tech to Halo Wars games on the PC, Harmonix Games asked about an in-person meeting during GDC this year, and Capcom asked for a few things, too. Other developers including Ninja Theory and TaleWords also saw their private messages with Denuvo opened to the world.
