Hi , just a heads up for anyone with an Electronics Arts account, EA have been hacked and people are being locked out of their accounts and im one of those people!



Someone told me late last night that EA had been hacked and i didn't really bother to much about it and planned to change my password in the morning. 8am this morning i got an email from EA saying my email had been changed and i had to contact them if it wasnt me who changed it. Of course i can no longer log into my EA account and so begins the hard slog of trying to get back control of my account


It seems EA are denying there has been any compromise of their servers.

Don't get caught out like me....change that password now!

worked for EA 4 yrs .. 3 yrs ago
was great until they fired 3000 employees worldwide because of the bad economy
my boss prefered to lay me off with a 6 k check
before loosing profit in his own summer bonus
even when i was hired my first yrs i didnt receive any bonus money (around 1 pay)
told me that it was going for himself because he was more older in the compagny
and other silly reasons to justify me not receiving my earned bonus and keep it to himself
but next yrs i would get one (but then next yrs i only got half)
those compagny are extremely greedy and i was working harder then my boss
last time i saw him randomly after shoping in downtown
he is doing 60k a yrs and was laughing telling me he didnt come to the job
for the last 3 months (connect by vpn from his home)

EA = unfair with his employees
so who ever hacked them ..is probably someone pissed off
maybe a unsatisfy client or a pissed off old employees

programmers were nice compare to the production team and producers
that though they were gods (paid 150k a yrs)
i was Mastering Lab Technician and i was doing everything in that lab
inventory.. automator repair .. always coming in te office when needed
doing most of the emails myself .. and my boss was doing nada .. extremely lazy

but i had to follow his order because he already fired a lot of people himself
was quite proud of that reminding me that he had the power of doing so
7 yrs younger then me .. a kid was giving me orders because he had good relation
with the big boss

From the reports online a lot of people are saying that the emails for the accounts have been changed to Russian Emails.

OMG EA are asked for crazy amounts of information off me before i can get my account back


I answered all their questions and now they want me to give them the names of any servers i have played on recently. If i cant log into any games online then how am i going to be able to work out what servers i have been on?

Ok i finally got control of my account again after ringing EA directly.

American customer service is No1


I couldn't find the number for contacting EA without logging into my account but i couldnt do that because my email and password had been changed. Lucky for me my girlfriend had an EA account and could get the number for me


For international people you can ring it free through skype
