Electronic Arts, Like Every Other Company, Was Hacked

Here's the moment when we all feign shock and surprise that a big company like EA was hacked. One of the servers for EA's was the target of the attack, which involved phone numbers and mailing addresses.

Credit Card and Social Security numbers were not involved in the relatively minor breach, which revolved around the website for the game Neverwinter Nights, but if you've ever registered on that site, you may want to change you passwords just to be safe. Ugh, passwords. [Reuters]

Honestly, I'd like to know. That's the one piece of information that should never touch an online form.
