EA denies that their digital distribution service Origin is hacked
“Please contact Origin Help or EA’s customer experience group at help.ea.com.
There are reports flowing around that Origin has been hacked and people are getting emails of their Origin emails being changed even though they didn’t do it. Earlier there was a problem with EA and Microsoft where FIFA players would get hacked on Xbox Live, but that was fixed by Microsoft it seems as there are very few reports of that happening now.
So EA has said that there has been no intrusion into their database in a statement to IGN.
“Anytime a player has a question about the security of his or her account or personal data, we take it very seriously and take all possible steps to help. For any customer who cannot access their Origin account for any reason, we ask them to please contact Origin Help or EA’s customer experience group at help.ea.com,” the statement reads.
“The robust security measures in place to protect Origin users accounts are constantly being expanded and upgraded, and we also strongly recommend customers take the protective steps of using strong passwords and changing passwords often.”
