The rumor of EA getting hacked...

#1MestizoFreakPosted 10/2/2011 1:41:25 PM
Is it true? Given the reports on here about content bought with the hacked person's credit cards, it seems that way. The hacked people have EA games, or had EA content bought with their cards. Anyway, I have some questions.

1. Am I safe if I take my credit card info off of my account when I'm done using the card?
2. Even if this is true, should I still play an EA game? I've been wanting to get Dragon Age 2.
3. Is EA/Microsoft going to do anything about this other than banning people/freezing accounts?

Honestly i would just start using different passwords for everything, yes it will get "complicated" but just have them writtin down somewhere YOU can remember.

I already made a more mixed up password for my main mail. Going to for my 360 as well (by changing it on the 360 just in case)

There are also unconfirmed rumors that even more EA sites were hacked more recently.

Anyway, what about my questions? Can I get an answer for them?

1) You're never completely safe, but yes take your CC off of there.
2) Why can't you play EA games? I don't see why you can't.
3) What can they do?
