LUFTRAUSERS Code Stolen

Indi developer Vlambeer has suffered the theft of game code, a developers kit and more at E3 in one of those trade show thefts we've heard about before, reports Polygon. A bag with a laptop, two iPads, a PlayStation Vita, a Vita test kit, a Kindle Fire, and the code for the company's upcoming LUFTRAUSERS were taken at the Figueroa Hotel's pool bar, which probably would not be mistaken for Fort Knox. "Basically everything Vlambeer is in the bag," explains Rami Ismail, Vlambeer co-founder. "So it kind of feels like Vlambeer got stolen. We have good backups. We take good care of everything, We've got decent backups to continue working. It's just a giant pain." The story anecdotally reports on a number of other thefts, making it sound like a rash, but they have a statement from the show organizers saying that this is not the case, and security has been tight.

Exactly... anyone with a business notebook should have the drive encrypted.
