Personal note - regular issue \o/

There might be a few more minimal editions coming up in the next few weeks, please bear with me until I'm back in my regular routine. But I'm really happy that I got to publish a regular newsletter issue this week :-) Enjoy!

Breaches and leaks

  • TeamViewer: hackers breached their systems back in 2016, but the company never disclosed it.
  • Stack Overflow: an attacker got into their network on May 5th, and roamed around until detected on May 11th.
  • Over 12.000 unsecured MongoDB databases have been dropped, leaving a note for ransom. I guess that's one way of getting rid of unsecured databases: link.
  • OGUsers: An underground forum used to trade stolen accounts, was itself hacked. All data was put online on a rival's site. Ow, irony.
