EA Origin Hacked; Time To Change Your Passwords

Video game fans, take heed: many users are reporting that their EA Origin accounts — the ones required to play games like Battlefield 3, Mass Effect 3 and many other popular titles — have been breached. This means it’s time to change your passwords.

You all know the drill by this point: change the password to your EA account before someone gets a hold of it. If you use the same password on any other accounts, you should change them too. You can do this by logging into the EA Origin client on your computer, clicking on your username and changing it from there — I can’t seem to find anywhere on EA’s website to change my password, so if you don’t have Origin installed, you may have to download it or change it from your game console of choice.

No word yet on how many accounts were breached or how, since EA has yet to say anything useful about the subject. Hit the link to read more.
