EA and Police Data Stolen By Private Hackers

Share post:

Private data from the game maker Electronic Arts (EA) and the Presque Isle Police Department in Maine were reportedly stolen by hackers who broke into their networks.

The hackers used an individual who goes by the username Leakbook to sell 780GB of EA source code and tools for FIFA 21 on an underground crime forum.

In the case of the Presque Isle Police Department, almost 200GB of its private data was put on the Internet by a ransomware group known as Avaddon, after the department had refused to pay the demanded ransom.
