Last month, hackers breached the security of EA’s FIFA 21 and other precious data. Now, the hackers have started posting some of what they illegally obtained on an unnamed forum. This includes a 1.3GB compressed archive containing references to Origin and some internal development tools.
They also said that EA has ignored their threats of blackmail thus far. The hackers wrote:
“Few week ago we send email for ransome [sic] to EA but we dont get any response so we will posting the [source].
If they dont contact us or dont pay us we will keep posting it.”
In a statement to Motherboard, EA confirmed that they’re said it’s aware and is working on solving the problem.
“At this time, we continue to believe that it does not contain data that poses any concern to player privacy, and we have no reason to believe that there is any material risk to our games, our business or our players.
We continue to work with federal law enforcement officials as part of this ongoing criminal investigation.”
