If you are one of those impacted, hang in there while they work on it. In the meantime a LOT of EA access is down as well. Help and Support being a big one. That means NO Chat, Email, or Phone Calls for assistance right now. So hang in there.
For the rest of us, I do not know how far or wide this will spread, so use caution while in the game and watch your progress in case some is not saved. (Screenshots do wonders.)
Their site still shows them active on my end, but follow what EA reports. https://www.origin.com/en-us/status
