Electronic Arts Source Code Stolen

Electronic Arts got hacked, with the attackers nabbing source code for EA's hit FIFA 21 soccer game and trying to sell it on underground hacking forums, and also obtaining the code for EA's Frostbit gaming engine. Disclosure of the hack knocked EA's shares by nearly 2.8%, though they mostly recovered, Fortune notes.

Criminals were able to steal the source code that powers EA’s popular FIFA 21 soccer video game and are attempting to sell the technology in underground hacking forums, reported tech publication Motherboard. The hackers also stole the source code for EA’s Frostbite gaming engine, which is used in several EA video games like Madden NFL 21, Battlefield, and Anthem.
