An Electronic Arts website for its EA Sports FIFA 20 Global
Series operated for about 30 minutes with a glitch during which time 1,600
users had their personal information exposed.
The incident began on October 3 at 1 pm when users began
noticing and informing the company that they were viewing others registration
details, the company said via its Twitter
account. EA said the site was taken down at 1:30 pm and an investigation determine
and fix the cause. EA is now attempting to contact those impacted and
registration for the game will re-open in a few days.
However, the quick reaction by EA was not enough to satisfy
The website in question was supposed to support EA’s FIFA 20
Global Series tournament for the company’s just launched FIFA 20 soccer game.
