Respawn Rolls Out Security Update in Response to Apex Legends Hack

From PC Mag: Apex Legends developers at Respawn have finally responded to the hacking incident over the weekend that forced its North American Apex Legends Global Series (ALGS) esports finals to be put on hold.

"On Sunday, a few professional Apex Legends players accounts were hacked during an ALGS event," Respawn wrote late Tuesday night.

"Game and player security are our highest priorities, which is why we paused the competition to address the issue immediately. Our teams have deployed the first of a layered series of updates to protect the Apex Legends player community and create a secure experience for everyone," Respawn continued.

"We are working," writes Apex Legends Security Analyst Conor Ford in response to the hack. "The team on this are some of the most talented I've ever had the pleasure of working with. All I can say is, the care and love shown from parties involved makes me thankful for the coworkers and devs on this game," Ford added.
