EA Hacked (Not ransomware)

So many companies hacked lately eh.

So many known companies in the news about being hack.

 

Company hack has not changed, you just see more in the news because it's a large publicly known company. I'd say for each company you hear in the news about a hack you most likely have way more than 10,000 times that amount that you do not know. If someone would tell me it's 1 millions time's more I wouldn't be surprised.

it's really obvious a competent hacking collective will get in without much trouble and get really valuable data.

Hopefully not DRM attacks or using anti-cheat, as they can monitor your system in ways that can be exploited or abused.

But I guess that can be harder to deal with.

I've stopped playing Warzone for exactly this problem and had hoped a proper anti-cheat would be built for the new BF game. RIP hopes and dreams of enjoying this game.

Given how Battlefield 2042 is planned to be multiplayer only, there are grim times ahead for it. Apex Legends running on Source however won't be affected. It's sucks to be EA at the moment.

This is why I always ask for bots, even if they might not have the best AI solutions for this or map designs for bots. (option for MP and "SP")

I really wish there could come a bot solution that could help more games and be less demanding, too strong of an AI and use most of your performance on 10-100 complex AI units.

The issues in Titanfall 2 was the hacker could pull a user's information that was running on a VPN from the internal server cloud. Someone has full access to EA's backend. If that's happen for a harassment campaign, it means there's glaring openings for all other sorts of infiltration in the network.

I mean, a VPN wouldn't do much here though?

Also what user information, EA, account, or system info etc.

Hey hackers, can you make an updated version of NHL games on PC? Thanks!

There will be bots in the new BF games, and I guess some people will enjoy playing this way. But if I'm going to buy a Multiplayer game, I completely expect to play with non-cheating people from across the internet. Otherwise I'll just play story driven single player games.

Be patient.

Sure, but at least bots can help with low player counts or when hacking or the servers gets put offline.

A bit like bots in BF2 did somewhat help. While in newer games they either is not "made for the game" or not getting the love they would need, to make it a playable experience.

Facepalm: The hackers responsible for the recent data breach involving Electronic Arts have divulged how they did the deed. A representative for the hacking group told Motherboard they got the ball rolling by purchasing stolen cookies online for just $10. Ouch.

From there, the hackers were able to use the cookies to gain access to a Slack channel used by EA employees.

Once on Slack, one of the hackers messaged an EA IT support member and explained that they had lost their phone at a party the night before. They were successful in getting a multifactor authentication token that gave them access to EA’s corporate network (this apparently worked twice, the rep said).

With access to EA’s network, the hackers located a service for developers compiling games that they were able to log into. Creating a virtual machine reportedly gave them even more visibility on the network, allowing them to access another service and download game source code.
