Finally, a FIFA scandal you can't blame on Sepp Blatter A US man is facing felony wire fraud charges for allegedly stealing and reselling in-game currency for EA Sports' FIFA console games. Anthony Clark has been charged by the Northern Texas District Court with a count of Conspiracy to Commit Wire Fraud for his role in a scheme to automatically generate and then re-sell the digital coins used to purchase perks in FIFA Ultimate Team on the PlayStation and Xbox console lines. The "Ultimate Team" mode allows players to construct their own football squad using virtual player cards.

Those cards are purchased with virtual currency that can be bought or earned through in-game accomplishments (such as playing online matches). Those virtual coins can be traded between users and are commonly sold outside of the game for real-world money via unauthorized black market sites. According to the FBI's indictment of Clark, he and three others used a specially crafted app to trick EA servers into giving them in-game currency by sending in fake "completed game" reports and getting the coins as a reward. Having used the application to fraudulently "mine" the coins, the group then connected with re-sellers in Asia and Europe, who purchased the bulk loads and then re-sold the coins to players. The FBI believes the scheme netted Clark and his co-conspirators, one of whom has already taken a plea deal, millions of dollars from the re-sale of the stolen coins. Among the tools used in the scheme was FIFA source code and developer tools the group allegedly obtained from the hackers behind the massive Microsoft, Valve and EA hacking spree.

Two of those hackers, Austin Alcala and Nathan Leroux, are set to testify as witnesses in the case. Clark has pled not guilty to the charge. ® Sponsored: Customer Identity and Access Management
Many mobile games can access sensitive functions and data on employer-issued devices including SMS, social networking, location services & tracking and calendar accessMaidenhead, U.K. – Oct. 18, 2016 – Augmented reality, fueled most recently by the Pokémon GO sensation, and virtual reality gaming opportunities are beginning to really open up on mobile platforms. According to IDC, the number of smartphone and tablet gamers should increase to more than 1.9 billion in 2020. Millions of mobile device users are predicted to play these types of games within a few years, and the workplace is not immune. According to a new report, “It’s Not All Fun and Games: A BYOD Reality Check for Companies”, many of these popular apps could violate corporate risk policies. “Some employees care about data security and privacy when they curate the apps they download to their mobile phones, but many don’t,” said Maureen Polte, Vice President of Product Management at Flexera Software. “When those phones are Bring Your Own Device, poor employee choices suddenly impact corporate risk. That is why Application Readiness automation – commonly used by companies to test their enterprise applications – must be extended to mobile apps, so CIOs can have a firm understanding of which ones violate their BYOD policies.” The report found that of the almost 60 popular Apple iOS mobile games tested[1]: 73 percent, including Angry Birds, AR Defender 2, Bejeweled Classic, Bubble Shooter, Clash of Clans, Clash Royale, Color Switch, Game of War, Mobile Strike, Pokémon GO and Slither, support Location Services & Tracking. 68 percent, including Angry Birds, Bejeweled Classic, Bubble Shooter, Clash of Clans, Clash Royale, Color Switch, Game of War, Mobile Strike and Slither, support Social Networking. 58 percent, including Angry Birds, Bejeweled Classic, Bubble Shooter, Clash of Clans, Clash Royale, Color Switch and Slither, support Calendar Access. 54 percent, including Angry Birds, AR Defender 2, Bejeweled Classic, Bubble Shooter, Color Switch and Slither, support SMS. “Unfortunately, not all mobile app developers are trustworthy,” added Polte. “CIOs must have a centralised, automated and repeatable Application Readiness process to identify and test those apps to determine what they do, and whether they comply or collide with an organisation’s BYOD policies. To compile the report, Flexera Software identified almost 60 widely used gaming applications, representing a small sampling of those that can be found in the Apple App Store and that could easily be downloaded by employees to a corporate-issued or BYOD device. These apps were tested using AdminStudio Mac® and Mobile, an Application Readiness solution that helps organisations identify, manage, track and report on mobile apps, simplify mobile application management, reduce mobile app risk, and address the rapidly growing demand for mobile apps in the enterprise. # # # [1]The apps tested were: 100 Balls, Angry Birds, Angry Birds Rio, AR Defender 2, Baby Twins – Terrible Two, Batman: Arkham Underworld, Bejeweled Classic, Bubble Shooter, Buddyman Run, Candy Crush, Clash of Clans, Clash of Kings, Clash Royale, Color Switch, Cookie Jam, Crossy Road, CSR Racing 2, Despicable Me: Minion Rush, Dictator: Emergence, Diner Dash, Disney Emoji Blitz, Doodle Jump Free, Drop Out, Eggs, Inc., Episode – Choose Your Story, Farm Heroes, Farm Heroes Saga, FIFA 16 Ultimate Team, Game of War, Hand of God, Happy Wheels, Harvest Swap, Hay Day, Hungry Shark Evolution, Ingress, Jetpack Joyride, Kendall and Kylie, Micro Machines, Mobile Strike, Mr Jump, NBA Live Mobile, PartyPoker, Piano Tiles, Pokémon GO, Quizduell, Rolling Sky, Slither.io, Snappy Bird: New Season, Soccer Stars, Stack, Steps, Subway Surfers, Talking Tom Gold Run, Temple Run, Temple Run 2, The Sims FreePlay, Walking Dead, Words with Friends and Zynga Poker Classic – Texas Holdem.
