The Most Pointless Cyber Attack Ever?!?

June 15, 2021

A few days ago EA Games, one of the world’s most successful video game companies was hacked by a group that stole the source code for a video game called FIFA 21. They also swiped the source code to a popular game engine called Frostbite. Currently, this group is trying to sell both on the black market.

Tom and Chunga are fascinated by this story for several reasons, the biggest being that these hackers are actually talking! Believe it or not, they even have an official “representative” that’s talking to the press and telling everyone how they did it! The Hacks will discuss the specifics of this whacky caper and whether or not it’s even worth trying to buy the source code back. (Spoiler: Chunga says if it were up to him, he wouldn’t) Listen now!
