EA Sniped By Devastating Security Breach As Hackers Loot 780GB Of Data
Recently, hackers began boasting about their recent EA attack on private hacking forums. In the posts, the hackers explained that they took FIFA 21 source code, Frostbite engine source code and tools, proprietary EA frameworks and software development kits, and code bundles to streamline game development. This adds up to 780GB of data which has gone up for sale on a variety of forums for "Only serious and rep [reputation] members all other would be ignored," as the hackers wrote.
Interestingly, at the time of writing, EA does not offer a bug bounty program, and the company is hiring for several different security positions. Perhaps EA will instate a bug bounty program as an extra layer of protection so white hat hackers can earn something from helping to secure EA systems. In any case, let us know what you think of this attack in the comments below.
