Hackers hijack EA server, phishing site asks for Apple IDs, credit cards and maiden names




Once again it’s hackers managed to sneak onto the server of a large company. Affected is this time the well-known games developer EA, who also oversees the origin network and the corresponding sales platform. Probably about an outdated calendar plugin, it was possible to manipulate the server, so this might display a phishing website. Asked about here is the Apple ID, credit card information, the full name, date of birth and the mother’s maiden name, as Netcraft reported . All information that you can very well use as a criminal in the interaction.


Also an Origin phishing site was discovered, which wants to tap the e-mail address, password and the answer to the security question from the clueless page visitors. This page hangs out for more than a week on the servers of EA. Whether the attackers have also stolen data from the servers is not yet known.

In such a case, one can only again advise caution. Look closely where your angebt your access data, payment data or other information. I would make it as suspicious if EA suddenly information about my Apple account will or if my Origin login suddenly looks different and I more data than intended to indicate otherwise. You go it’s probably similar, but rather once too often warned than sorry.
