Hack of grand scale: hackers stole 780 GB from Electronic Arts, including the source of FIFA 21 and the Battlefield engine



The famous Electronic Arts company suffered as a result of a hacker attack. The authoritative edition of Vice told about the hacking of a grandiose scale.

In total, the hackers stole 780 GB of data, including the source code of games and internal tools. Stolen includes the source code for FIFA 21 and Frostbite, the engine that powers many EA games, including Battlefield, FIFA, Madden and Star Wars. Hackers have already begun to advertise their “findings” on hacker sites for the purpose of selling.

An EA spokesman has already confirmed to reporters that the hack was hacked and that the information put up for sale was stolen by hackers. At the same time, EA assures that hackers could not get to the personal data of the players and, thus, the privacy of users was not affected. An Electronic Arts spokesman explained:

We are investigating a recent invasion of our network in which a limited amount of game source code and related tools were stolen. Player data has not been accessed and we have no reason to believe that there is any risk to user privacy. We have already made security improvements since the incident and do not expect this to affect our games and business. We are actively working with law enforcement officials and other experts as part of the ongoing investigation. “
