Digital Arts hit by cyber assaults, hackers take supply code and instruments with And

It appears that another high profile video game company has been hacked. This time it’s third-party giant Electronic Arts.

The data breach was originally reported by VICE Motherboard, indicating that hackers stole “an abundance of game source code and related tools” for the Frostbite engine (known for games like FIFA).

The hackers say they appear to have the “full capabilities to exploit” EA services and allegedly stole 780 GB of data. Now they are trying to sell it.

An EA spokesperson confirmed in a statement to Motherboard that the company had been compromised:

“We are investigating a recent intrusion into our network in which a limited amount of game source code and related tools were stolen.”

No player data has been stolen and it is believed that there is no threat to player privacy. EA has also improved its security since the incident and is now working with law enforcement and other experts on an ongoing criminal investigation.

This breach follows a cyberattack on Capcom last November and one on CD Projekt Red in February this year. If we hear any developments regarding this latest version, we will definitely let you know.
