[KG] 600 Origin accounts leaked online, EA claims no breach has occurred - Page 2

post #11 of 23
The problem is....I cannot remember the email address associated with mine. I had to have my Origin account swapped from an email I didn't have access too, and so I decided to create an Outlook account...problem is I haven't used it since I created it. Oh, well....

I never did like the Battlefield series. I'd probably play Arma III over battlefield any day of the week. I have a semi-gaming laptop that cannot run Arma very well, so haven't played any FPS games in awhile.

Wasnt Bioware hacked a couple years ago? And it was recommended to change your passwords and all that. But when EA bought BioWare everyone who had a Bioware account also had a new Origin account. Could be that these are some of the accounts that were created from that and the passwords were taken from BioWare back then. The majority of people really dont like to change their passwords even when hacks happen. It is sad how much people dont care even a little bit about digital security.

I have that enabled already but I might still change it.

Everybody keeps referencing this PasteBin but there's no way to find it.

I'm not interested in the passwords, I just need a dump of all the emails to make sure mine is not there. I already had to go through this when Adobe got hacked. The only thing that saved my Gmail account from getting compromised is the fact that I have 2-factor authentication enabled. The thief would have had to get access to my phone before they were able to login.

I like this part :
Accidental, maliciously or a hack is a security breach. Doesn't matter if it was automatic, done by a disgruntled employee or a hack. Just because it wasn't a hack doesn't mean it wasn't a breach of security.

Like the article suggests, they may have been leaked by phishing it from the users, not hacking EA's database. It does seem pretty small compared to other leaks but who knows.

The website tells you which breaches your account was involved in. It lists a friends of mine as part of the Adobe breach for example.

My Origin account has been hacked MULTIPLE TIMES. My computer is secure, but their databases ARE NOT. The day I created an origin account and activated BF4, my account was immediately hacked despite having a 12 character password with every character set allowed and no dictionary words or easy replacements. When I finally got my account back from the russians that stole it, I could not change my name and was stuck with ABC1337 or something retarded like that. Trying to change it failed with an error no rep could tell me about, but when I finally got one who could after a few days he refused to change it despite the circumstances saying there is a 7 day wait between changes. Ridiculous! mad.gif

Furthermore, you cannot use all symbols like ?>.:;'^&*()% but only !@#$ in passwords, which have a 20 character maximum limit limit too! What security competent company has these standards? NOT ONE. madsmiley.png Origin's security is the second worst I have ever dealt with, the #1 crown going to portalconnect. Which has a whopping 12 character maximum, FLASH AND JAVA BASED LOGIN FORMS and uses the most outdated and idiotic setup they can possibly make with almost exclusively java and flash. Server uptime must be something like 90%. It is so, so bad... stupid doctors use it as a "secure email alternative" HAHAHA complete morons.

The origin launcher uses a high amount of CPU usage and memory (100's of MB) when the silly loading bar is active, and each window for it uses even more, so you can get 20%+ cpu usage just by downloading an update. Origin is programmed by disgustingly incompetent fools, use it only if you absolutely must for games like Battlefield.

There are numerous threads on it. I can't find the one I want though because OCN's search function is a piece of crap and gives me everything with the word "originally" in it when I search "origin" with no option to match exactly. thumbsdownsmileyanim.gif

This issue comes up all the time. It makes my blood boil.

Are you sure your PC is fine? Hacks don't just occur when you have a strong password, not even by bruteforce.

If not your computer, some part of your traffic or router is.
