A spokesperson for video game publisher Electronic Arts (EA) verified that hackers have compromised the company's systems and stolen game source code and other assets.
The hackers claimed in online forum posts that they had acquired 780 gigabytes of data, including the Frostbite source code undergirding a series of video games, and were offering "full capability of exploiting on all EA services."
