Hackers stole Electronic Arts’ source code for FIFA 21, the Frostbite engine, and game development tools, according to MotherBoard.
The threat actors shared screenshots of the stolen source code and directory listings to prove the legitimacy of their claims. Additionally, the hackers claim they have Microsoft’s Xbox and Sony’s SDKs and API keys for sale.
Earlier this week, the hackers behind the EA data breach also announced that they were selling about 780 gigabytes of the stolen game source code and tools on an underground hacking forum.
Electronic Arts data breach had no impact on business, gaming, or players’ privacy
An EA spokesman acknowledged the data breach that exposed a “limited” number of source code repositories and development tools.
The company added that it did not expect an impact on its business or gaming activity after the data breach. Additionally, EA disclosed that it was working with law enforcement officials and other experts as part of the ongoing criminal investigation. Electronic Arts also clarified that the data breach was not a ransomware incident, unlike recent high-profile compromises against Colonial Pipeline and JBS.
“We are investigating a recent incident of intrusion into our network where a limited amount of game source code and related tools were stolen. No player data was accessed, and we have no reason to believe there is any risk to player privacy.”
