Epik data breach
Epik data breach impacts 15 million users, including non-customers
Epik, the domain registrar known for hosting several large organizations, has confirmed a hack of its systems, a week after attackers branding themselves with the Anonymous hacktivist collective label said that the group had obtained and leaked gigabits of data from the hosting company, including 15 million email addresses.
Epik has now confirmed that an “unauthorized intrusion” did in fact occur into its systems. The announcement follows last week’s incident of hacktivist collective Anonymous leaking 180 GB of data stolen from online service provider Epik. To mock the company’s initial response to the data breach claims, Anonymous had altered Epik’s official knowledge base.
“The breach exposed a huge volume of data not just of Epik customers, but also scraped WHOIS records belonging to individuals and organizations who were not Epik customers,” states HaveIBeenPwned. “The data included over 15 million unique email addresses (including anonymised versions for domain privacy), names, phone numbers, physical addresses, purchases and passwords stored in various formats.”
