Respawn release statement and update on the Apex Legends hacking situation | #hacking | #cybersecurity | #infosec | #comptia | #pentest | #hacker | #hacking | #aihp


Recently I reported on Apex Legends pro players getting hacked during the Global Series tournament, and now the developer Respawn Entertainment has released a small statement.

This is after Easy Anti-Cheat washed their hands of it, saying basically it’s nothing to do with EAC. There were lots of posts all across social media warning people to stay away from any EAC protected game, even with there being zero evidence it was an EAC problem.

The statement from Respawn was posted on X (not even on their Steam page) which reads:

On Sunday, a few professional Apex Legends players accounts were hacked during an ALGS event.

Game and player security are our highest priorities, which is why we paused the competition to address the issue immediately.

Our team have deployed the first of a layered series of updates to protect the Apex Legends player community and create a secure experience for everyone.

Thank you for your patience.

I’ve verified that as of this update, it does still work just fine on Linux. So for now there should be no problems playing it on Steam Deck and Desktop Linux. Still hoping they don’t add in EA AntiCheat, which blocks Linux, but you’re good for now.

Apex Legends is available on Steam.
