According to the company, the theft “will not affect” its business in any way.
Hackers managed to steal over 780 gigabytes of confidential data from Electronic Arts – among them there are even sources for FIFA 21 and the Frostbite engine, as well as access to a set of tools (SDK). The press service of Electronic Arts reported that the data of the players were not affected during the attack, so users should not worry about the leak. It is also reported that after the discovery of the hack, EA specialists took all measures to improve security.
After the incident, the company increased security – what happened should not affect the stability of the games themselves. EA works with the police.
The hackers have already presented evidence that they fully have the data stolen from EA, but the source codes and tools have not been made public. The attackers intend to sell the stolen goods.
Earlier on one of the underground forums on the darknet published the source codes of the computer game Cyberpunk 2077. This was reported by the Telegram channel “Information Leaks”. According to the dates of the files in the archive, the data was stolen on February 5, 2021, from the servers of the developers of the CD Projekt Red studio.
