According to Eurogamer, in its statement, EA said, “We are currently working to identify the right account owners to restore their access to the content on it, and the players affected. will get a response from our team soon.”
There are about 40-50 FIFA Ultimate Team accounts hacked
The manufacturer estimates that “fewer than 50 accounts”, or in other words more than 40, are affected. The hackers deleted all FIFA scores from the compromised accounts and the money is believed to be worth thousands of pounds.
Through its investigation, EA found that phishing was the primary method used to hack accounts, in which a malicious fake email was sent to the profile owner, who clicked on a link suspicious or provide your information after being scammed.
To help assist players in similar situations in the future, EA says it is running three courses of action: additional training for account-related EA advisors; implement additional steps for account ownership verification such as required management approvals for email change requests; and update customer experience software to better identify suspicious activity, flag accounts at risk, and further limit the possibility of human error during account updates.
