I guess it's not a big deal since I don't really play EA games anymore . I have what I need on VR and Steam..... oh well. Battlefield and Dragon Age amd Mass Effect have new iterations expected,just.... EA has messed up too much for me to want to go back to then. I want the microtransaction %s and crap they do to be on blast so class action law suits can expose the underage gambling for what it is and get slammed.

@Ethernal Dreamer and this is why 2 Factor Authentication is a thing, so even if they logged in using that cookie or cached credentials, it would recognise that the IP you used isn't one you've used before and will prompt for 2 Factor authentication, so say confirm it on your phone. This is a joke for a large company such as EA to not use it.

You might not know this, but most hacks occur not due to incompetent systems, but incompetent employees.

Hey @YongYea, i know a bit about dev work. Human Laziness is the Number one security Risk, always has been. Ie. a dude commented here "The hackers did the equivalent of walking into an army base and telling the guard they 'forgot' their uniform and ID and walked out with military secrets." Something really similar already happened to a Friend of mine, he was Posting Guard and saw some dudes just stroll in trough the front gate as if they owned the place. NOBODY did anything. As the Gate guards assumed they were Military. Turns out they were just Drug Addicts. XD About source code being stolen. It HELPS by cutting a few steps on the Hacking/Cracking Process. But then again not that MUCH. Especially cause you can decompile and decrypt/reverse engineer Source Code. (If you are determined enough) (Really Cracking groups do it ALL THE TIME -- Though Limited to the DRM service Part of the Code) I think the real damage of having their IP out in the wild is that now anybody can copy/paste their code. Thus EA lose a significant competitive Edge.

Cybersecurity worker for a large company here; these kinds of hacks are depressingly common, and most companies are could be hit by them at any time because security wasn't taken into much consideration when their networks got built (alongside other reasons)

This is the level of incompetence that EA displayed to the Hackers: - A terrorist on a mission to assassinate the president walks up to a military base, tells them that they forgot their uniform & whatever, they are let in without doing any kind of check, then manages to convince them with another dumb lie that ppl should see through, flies the guy to the white house, lets him into the president's room, then the terrorist presses the button on his chest. boom. This level of stupid is beyond idiocy & laziness. If this is all that hackers had to do to gain access to company databases, then every company on earth would have been robbed of all their data in a week at best. How will this affect other companies? It'll be incredibly sad if they are all that dumb.

Let me point out one thing there.. XB PS and EA pfx and crt with key? That means they have FULL access to every game EA has put out for the XBOX. pfx is a package of private certs used to sign things like, your webserver's SSL connection, certain banking transactions, and updating your games on certain game services. They can identify the user as a member of EA by that cert package. The CRT is but one file of that package, however the fact it was called out separately makes me believe it could also be significant for other services, like matchmaking services. Undecided on that one. The fact the hackers also got the keys means this entire package and identity must be scrubbed.. however, the fact the hackers got them likely also means they had a chance to go in and.. adjust, certain games that EA had put out there for the xbox platform. Just imagine EA digging through all of your savegames, and any purchases you've made through your xbox account.. and because of how tightly integrated their login service is with all of their other apps, a developer who enjoys some gaming on his xbox might find his corporate website is now under attack.. by him, because his developer identity is on the back end connected to his gaming account. And that's just the tip of the ice berg.

Whoever in EA's IT department gave those tokens out is done for. I work in IT myself albeit for the govt but there would be a lot of security hoops one would have to jump through to get access to our network. You can't just say hey I lost my phone. Managers / supervisors would have to be notified and they would have to kick off a process involving signed (securely signed) forms to get that person access again. There's multiple points of verification to prove that that person is who they say they are before they get anything. If some outside person just randomly requested access it would set off all sorts of alarms and quickly become a security incident. Unfortunately a lot of companies operate lax like this and then they get hacked and are too shamed to admit it even.
CaptainSportExtreme Uukausi sitten
" I wouldn't put my trust in a company with a lackluster security". Let's be honest, lots of people lost trust in EA far before this incident. This is just another proof and another excuse to laugh at them

i should have commented this earlier but forgot to, but anyway, knowing that EA was so easy to hack, i dont wonder why that would be, because EA is so focused on making the money milking machines of code that it's no wonder they let hackers in, with all priority in money from players there is no room for security it seems LOL

6:41 - NO. Source code ONLY allows you to bypass security.... IFF there are bugs / exploits due to BAD CODE, or IFF the security isn't ACTUALLY secure, but uses "security by obscurity" which isn't secure. Having source code doesn't mean you can break security that's actually properly implemented: using a 2 key encryption (eg: RSA / diffy-helmann) OpenSSL, a literal backbone to the web, is OPEN SOURCE. A vulnerability was found in it, due to it being open source, and this in turn made the web more secure. Having the source ONLY shows bugs, algorithms, comments, and general structure of code.

EA saying this isn't a problem basically means that it's a huge problem and they don't want you to know about it. If you knew, you wouldn't trust them with payment information anymore, and they can't let anything threaten the bottom line at all, no matter the cost.

"They're stealing the hard work of others" Yong's own word in the last video Apparently it's ok to steal others work if you do it through dubious legal means like EA does (EA intentionally decided to release TF2 at the same time CoD & BF1 were launching, then later bought Respawn after "poor sales" of their last game)

I work in software and our company also deals in network security software. Whenever I see a case of a hack, I always think “Who is the sorry sap who gets fired over this?” because often times a hack occurs due to human error. In this case, if IT support was more thorough then the hack would have been avoided.
