Threat actors have breached the network for the gaming company Electronic Arts (EA). The hackers claim to have stolen nearly 750GB of data including game source code and debug tools. EA confirmed the breach and states that it was not a ransomware attack, but a limited amount of data was stolen. The company does not believe that the incident will affect any of its games. Bleeping Computer spoke to the threat actor behind the breach but they declined to comment on how they were able to infiltrate the network. The attackers claim to have access to all of EA’s services, telling customers willing to pay $28 million USD for the stolen data that they will also gain “full capability of exploiting on all EA services.” Screenshots on various hacking forms were put out by the threat actor as proof of the attack.
