Hackers Reportedly Hijack Apex Legends Tournament to Deploy Cheats | #hacking | #cybersecurity | #infosec | #comptia | #pentest | #hacker | #hacking | #aihp

EA’s shooter game Apex Legends was reportedly hit with a disruptive hacking incident Sunday night, causing the game’s esports league to press pause on its North American tournament until further notice.

“Due to the competitive integrity of this series being compromised, we have made the decision to postpone the NA finals at this time,” the official Respawn-affiliated Apex Legends account wrote on Twitter late Sunday. “We will share more information soon.”

In the middle of a tournament game, Apex pro player Noyan “Genburten” Ozkose said that his game was being hacked and taken over to deploy cheats on his account. In a video clip from the player’s livestream, a cheat program’s settings menu pops up briefly before Genburten yells, “I’m getting hacked, I’m getting hacked!”

Genburten, who is playing on a controller, appears baffled and shocked as the hackers repeatedly type into the chat box from his account: “by Destroyer2009 & R4ndom” and “Apex hacking global series.”

“It’s cheating!” Genburten said. “I can see everyone.”

Locations of all other players popped up on the screen, showing that someone had deployed “wall hacks” or visibility hacks onto his account via a cheat program. A text overlay connected to the cheat program also appears in the top left corner of the player’s screen. Within seconds, Genburten decides to leave the match.
