Was EA’s Origin Hacked? Users Claim Suspicious Activity

A spate of suspicious activity has come up on EA’s online game distribution / DRM service Origin lately, calling into question whether the service has been hacked.

Incidents include cases where users were charged for, earned achievements in, and even banned, for games they didn’t buy that were suddenly added to their libraries.

EA seems to have been on top of the issue, and are investigating these claims. In the meantime, if you own an Origin account and haven’t logged on lately, make sure to check for suspicious activity and make use of two factor authentication.
