Publisher EA has been breached by a crew of hackers who stole 780GB of game data, according to a Motherboard report. The stolen data reportedly includes FIFA 21 source code and tools from the Frostbite engine, although EA says no player data was taken.
According to the report, the hackers have access to not just FIFA 21‘s source code but also the code for its matchmaking servers. And in addition to Frostbite engine tools, the hackers claim to have stolen proprietary EA frameworks and software development kits that streamline game making.
A source with access to the forums where the hackers posted the stolen data showed Motherboard screenshots of massages written by the culprits, with one that read you have “full capability of exploiting on all EA services.” It seems the hackers are trying to sell the data on underground networks.
