The third-party video game giant Electronic Arts is reportedly the latest victim of a major cyber attack.
According to VICE Motherboard, hackers have managed to obtain source code and related tools used in the company's games. It's alleged 780GB of data has been taken from EA. This includes Frostbite source code which powers series like FIFA and Battlefield.
The hackers are aiming to sell the data, and claim they have "full capability of exploiting" all of EA's services.
An EA spokesperson has confirmed the following with Motherboard:
"We are investigating a recent incident of intrusion into our network where a limited amount of game source code and related tools were stolen"
Player data has apparently not been compromised, according to the same spokesperson. And EA is now actively working with law enforcement officials as part of an ongoing criminal investigation. It's also already made some security improvements.
