Uber Paid Hackers To Hide 57 Million User Data Breach

Uber is not known for it’s high level of ethics, but it turns out Uber paid hackers to not go public with the fact they’d breached 57 Million accounts – which is a very shady thing to do. Getting hacked is one thing (usually someone f*cked up), but choosing as a company to systematically cover up a breach to the tune of $100,000 – that’s just wrong.

57 Million is a fairly significant number as well with Uber having around 40 Million monthly users, of course, it’s not the scale of Equifax with 143 Million (or more).

Malaysia Telco Hack – Corporations Spill 46 Million Records

The Malaysia Telco Hack has been blowing up in the news with over 46 Million Records being leaked including IMEI numbers, SIM card details, serial numbers and home addresses.

This is an interesting one for me as I live in Malaysia, so this Malaysia Telco Hack was big news over here, especially seen as though from the numbers it looks to affect pretty much every single person in the country (and many more than once with a popular of 31 million).

Taringa Hack – 27 Million User Records Leaked

The Taringa hack is actually one of the biggest leaks of the year with 27 million weakly hashed passwords breached, but it’s not often covered in the Western media with it being a Latin American site (something like Reddit).

The leak happened in August and it seems like the hackers were able to brute force around 95% of the account passwords fairly quickly with Taringa using an outdated and flawing hashing algorithm – md5.

Deloitte Hacked – Client Emails, Usernames & Passwords Leaked

It seems to be non-stop lately, this time it’s Deloitte Hacked, which has also revealed all kinds of publically accessible resources that really should be more secure (VPN, RDP & Proxy services).

The irony is that Deloitte positions itself as a global leader in information security and offers consulting services to huge clients all over the planet, now it seems they don’t take their own advice. Honestly this is not all that uncommon, it’s human nature to leave your own stuff last as it doesn’t directly impact revenue or value (until you get hacked).

Time Warner Hacked – AWS Config Exposes 4M Subscribers

Time Warner Hacked – AWS Config Exposes 4M Subscribers

What’s the latest on the web, Time Warner Hacked is what it’s about now as a bad AWS S3 config (once again) exposes the details of approximately 4 Million subscribers.

This follows not long after the Instagram API leaking user contact information and a few other recent leaks involving poorly secured Amazon AWS S3 buckets and I’d hazard a guess that it won’t be the last.

Records of roughly four million Time Warner Cable customers in the US were exposed to the public internet after a contractor failed to properly secure an Amazon cloud database.
