Whoa, EA didn't store the passwords in plaintext! I'm shocked!
Must have learned something from Sony. The fact that someone learned something from Sony is surprising in itself.
Or EA is lying.

Could you tell EA? There is subtext, but this is not it!

Yes, there are ways. I could tell you, but then I'd have to kill you.

It seems that EA is highly targeted by hackers lately, but hopefully they will take this as a warning sign and make sure that in the future all their assets and customers will be protected properly.

Is there a way to "properly" protect anything on the net? It seems to me that any security is "hack-proof" only for as long as it takes to build a better hacker, which doesn't ever seem too long.
