In more bad news for video game companies, Electronic Arts recently admitted that hackers had breached its servers and stolen sensitive customer information. By targeting a bulletin board for the video game “Never winter Nights,” hackers were able to obtain EA customers’ sensitive information, including their full names, birth dates, e-mail addresses, and user passwords. Electronic Arts claims that customer credit card information was not compromised, but the hackers have plenty of personal information to launch identity theft attacks, should they choose.
