FIFA Hacked Again, Gets Ready for New Stories Based on the Stolen Data

FIFA President Gianni Infantino said in a statement to the press that the world football governing body's computer systems suffered a data breach for the second time this year.

Moreover, both the Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) and Union of European Football Associations (UEFA) are both suspected of having suffered data breaches.

Hackers might have stolen sensitive data after compromising FIFA's computer systems via a phishing campaign targeting multiple officials of the football global governing entity.

“FIFA condemns any attempts to compromise the confidentiality, integrity and availability of data in any organization using unlawful practices,” FIFA said in a statement published by The New York Times.

Regarding the data leaks, Infantino said that “If then this is being portrayed as something bad then I think there’s not much I can do other than my job.
