Eidos servers hacked, was Deus Ex source code taken?

Publisher Eidos Interactive has this week suffered a major hack on the server/s supporting its forthcoming Deus Ex: Human Revolution website and forums, as well as Eidos.com.
The image above is what was posted instead of the Deus Ex website for a few hours on Thursday. KrebsonSecurity managed to acquire a chat session between the hackers where they were claiming to have downloaded over 9,000 resumes, but more worringly for Eidos, there was talk of source code being found. What isn’t clear is whether it was for the new game, and if so, was it demo code, or the full game?
The hack is thought to have been carried out by former members of Anonymous, and in particular a hacker by the name of Ryan. He was recently thrown out of Anonymous for his actions according to Krebs. However, the chat session suggests it may have been two other hackers, going by the names of evo and nigg, just using Ryan’s name to get the blame put on him.
The entire chat session grab has been uploaded to Pastebin for all to see how these hackers think and decide to do things. It’s unclear what will happen next, but so far we haven’t seen any chatter about Deus Ex being leaked and playable.
Both the Deus Ex official site and Eidos.com seem to be back to normal meaning the security hole used to gain access has been closed and the defacement files removed. At the moment neither Eidos not parent company Square Enix have released a statemtent regarding the hack.
