The leak, which occurred four days after the company suddenly shut down its services through a communiqué published on its official web page, contained personal information such as usernames, emails, passwords, and IP addresses.
Later, on July 5, Twitter profile @imtolame published a tweet with a link to the company’s database. This led to the previously sold information being withdrawn just a few days later from deep web markets due to its loss of value. Additionally, said Twitter account has been recently implicated in the leak of similar contents, as well as in different operations belonging to the Anonymous group.
ElevenPaths’ analysts recommend to conduct a review of awareness policies aimed at avoiding the registration of professional accounts in third party services not linked to the work environment, as well as the reutilization of access passwords in different systems.
