Exploit In EA Origin Store Leaves Users Vulnerable To Hacking

Just when you think things can’t get any worse for Electronic Arts, it turns out they quite easily can.

While running a series of tests on EA’s Origin online store, security company ReVuln have uncovered a major exploit within its programming. One which would effectively allow someone with the right amount of knowledge of how the system works to screw with a user’s PC and upload a malicious code to cause problems for them. Effectively remotely hacking other users’ computers. (EA, Industry, PC, Tech)

Wasn't this already reported? either way it's legit as far as i can tell.

The reason they have these conventions is to inform these companies of said exploits. I bet you it's a highly complicated process and way out of practicality for the average joe... I highly doubt someones going to be able to do this because they got mad from a cheap kill on BF3. Anyway it's out in the open and EA probably have a fix in the works.

Yeah, but your "average joe" doesn't write malicious code either.

Then he wouldn't be the Average joe I'm talking about :p
