Although they launched a brand-new franchise, EA has yet to address their security features, an issue that has plagued the series in the past. With the recent release of FC 24, multiple players are already reporting that their Ultimate Team accounts got hacked.
One of the targeted players is FUTWiz pro player EthxnH who recently shared that he has been hacked not once but twice in a span of three days:
Been hacked AGAIN.
Only had 100K and they took 90K, guess they thought I would have worked my way back up.

There have been no compensations or resolutions for the affected players until this date. EA has yet to make a comment on this matter.
