Hackers steal 780GB of data and sell it online

Hackers have announced that in a recent cyber attack they managed to steal 780 GB of data from the gaming giant of Electronic Arts. This data was sold on the Internet.

The material stolen by the hackers was the source code of many classic games and other Electronic Arts tools, with the company noting that no personal data of users or players was leaked on the online multiplayer platforms of its titles. Electronic Arts did not announce the exact date of the incident.

It is worth noting that in 780 GB spying data is also the source code of the most popular FIFA 21, but also of the software FrostBite used by EA games to run on the computer.

The incident brought back memories of the recent ransomware attack on the Colonial Pipeline in the US and raises reasonable concerns about the level of security infrastructure of large companies and other entities to deal with cyber attacks of this magnitude.
