    So just a heads up to anyone using Origin... someone was able to reset my password on EA Origin earlier today, without having access to the associated email.

    The account is still fine so I presume the attackers don't have access to the new password generated. However, considering they were able to pull the activation key for a password change, it's possible someone might have access to EA's system.

    Do you still have access to the account or are locked out because of the unauthorized password change?

    I can still access it and have recovered the account, no response from EA yet though...

    I believe only the password recovery form was exploited, but that's still pretty concerning.

    It wasn't me! :O

    Sucks man, I knew Origin isn't/wasn't the best system which is why I am only using it for BF3 and absolutely nothing else. Better to lose one game than all of Steam or something, but it's good to hear you have it back. Going to be changing all my info around now on Origin.
