My System Specs

Default Origin account got hacked!!

Hey everyone. My Origin account got hacked today. I received an email stating..... "Your email address has been successfully changed. Please be sure to use your updated email the next time you log in to Origin. If you did not request this change, or if you have reason to believe your account has been compromised, please contact Origin Help for immediate assistance."

I have three games linked to Origin. BF3, NFS The Run, and Crysis 2. I almost bought MOH Warfighter the other day but decided to wait a bit. (I have other games to finish still)

Anyhow, sure enough I couldn't log in. I tried to recover my password but I didn't receive any emails. After hearing and reading about horror stories like this I thought I was screwed!! My wife found EA's phone number for me and within 15 minutes I was good to go. I couldn't believe how easy it was to get my account back. Quick and painless.


By the way.... It was hacked by a russian. User name was vovkolak2.
