http://kotaku.com/5960503/origin-use...g-hacked-a-lotSome users are reporting a wave of hacked and stolen accounts. It appears that a hacker or hackers are managing to log in to Origin accounts and then change the e-mail address and passwords associated with them, which of course locks out the original owners.
Stolen accounts are, sadly, nothing unusual in the modern online world; however, the security processes—or lack thereof—on Origin accounts are making it difficult for customers to get their accounts back. To verify accounts, EA customer service asks users to verify their dates of birth. However, the hackers are apparently changing the birthdates stored in a profile when they take over an account, thus preventing users from regaining access. Unlike other services such as Steam or Google, Origin currently has no secondary authorization process or two-step verification available.
Satan only watches his own back; not yours. Too bad, so sad, shouldn't have trusted EA.
Well now I'm worried...

If you are using a pretty secure password I wouldn't worry. Also don't click on random links that will ask you to log in. That's how allot of these hackers get your info. YOU the user are submitting it to them with the plishing emails that go out and people are unaware.
All my passwords always consist of a Capital letter, lower case, numbers and a symbol and over 8 characters long.. its the safest away.
Although Origin does lack some security measures regarding log in, they need to implement something like Steam where you have to check your email for a Code before you can continue..
