EA's surprise mechanics will even have us gambling if our personal information will get stolen. So fun and so ethical!

Guys this is EA. I'm sure a microtransaction of some kind will pop-up everytime one of the hackers tries to access their stolen source codes. Effectively making even more money than spending a bazillion amount of good cash to improve their cyber security.

Software Engineer here. EA's defense isn't as bad as it sounds. I dislike EA, and it's their fault they were so vulnerable. However, if they had a vulnerability reporting process and this other company didn't follow that process, that isnt EAs fault. This is industry standard. You're supposed to report vulnerabilities through the system. If you want to submit a sales pitch, that can be a footnote of your report(s). It's totally incomprehensible to me that a company would try to make a sales pitch instead of going through the proper reporting channel. That being said, EA clearly needs a better approach to security.

The hacker(s) should publicly post how rare the gambling percents are, so we all know how rare the character drops are, since EA refuses to post the percent drop rates

I'm sorry EA, they didn't followed their disclosure procedure? Isn't that one related to their customers? :D You said they had a marketing pitch... and then you said not interested :D They hopefully wasn't the ones hacking you - but technically, it seems they could have been :D

Jeez, you'd think EA would've learned to up their security systems after what happened with CDPR getting their systems hacked/leaked/stolen. Guess it wasn't much of a profit to bother doing so then.

EA is ran by clueless morons, to be honest they deserved to get hacked, those rejects have always been a complete pure cancer on gaming, instead of buying EA games, commiting piracy against EA titles should be a new norm, remember its not wrong to steal from criminals like EA, its the only way everyone can defeat the grand Satan of the gaming industry

As someone who works with technology, I agree with EA's defense. I personally get dozens of cold calls per week. (I can only imagine the volume of calls that more influential employees receive.) We acknowledge the random callers and place them on a list of questionable suppliers in case we encounter them in future development plans. We accept the responsibility of managing our company. We do not outsource corporate management to random cold callers. I completely disagree with Yong's suggestion that companies should take no responsibility of their own but, instead, let every kook on the block do it for them.

Crap like this, "surprise mechanics", and developers releasing completely broken games, is why I haven't bothered to buy a new game in almost 3 years. And even then, I still have to worry about the games I do still play whenever updates are released because 9 times out of 10, they usually end up breaking something with it.

Im willing to bet that EA will hire a company but it won't be the one that pointed out the weaknesses in their security. That's 'if' they hire. Chances are they'll probably pay some intern who was studying IT before working for EA to sort it out on the cheap.

EA should prove that they can keep up security for 5 years before any other company helps them out with dealing with hackers. if they cant do it themselves why should another company give them any kind of help...and this goes for any massive video game company not just EA

If only people bought more products and cash items. These poor indie companies don't have the money for proper cyber security. EA should open a Patreon account and make an IndieGoGo and GoFundMe campaign to finance their cyber security.

I seriously don’t understand how EA can ignore an actual warning about security loopholes. It’s good they finally decided to beef up security, I’m still afraid it isn’t going to be enough, but if there is one thing I’ve learned, it’s if someone REALLY wants in, they will find a way.

That wasn't a simple hack, it took many carefully thought out steps where 1 or 2 mistakes coulda gotten them busted. It'd be a simple one if they only needed to use "admin" and "1234567890", or exploit an ancient Micro$hit web tech.
