Hackers steal source code and more from Electronic Arts in massive data breach

Electronic Arts has reportedly fallen victim to hackers claiming to have gotten away with roughly 780GB worth of data. As you've no doubt seen, security breaches are a dime a dozen these days. EA is playing this one off as relatively minor, and fortunately, no player data was compromised in the breach.


Motherboard was first to report on the matter, noting a source with access to various underground hacking forums tipped them off. Per the forum posts, the hackers said they acquired the source code for FIFA 21 in addition to code for the game’s matchmaking server. They also made away with source code and tools for the Frostbite game engine that drives franchises like Battlefield, Madden NFL and FIFA.



Hard to feel bad for EA.
