Bitdefender Customer Login Data Stolen
« on: August 05, 2015, 05:49:29 AM »
An attacker stole customer login information from a server belonging to
anti-virus company Bitdefender. The affected server hosts cloud-based
management dashboards for some Bitdefender clients. The data thief
attempted to extort US $15,000 from the company, threatening to release
the purloined information. The thief did post information related to
three accounts, and reportedly has information for hundreds more. The
attacker was able to access the server because it had accidentally been
deployed with outdated software that contained a known vulnerability.
Affected customer passwords have been reset.

I'm pleased to see this thief described correctly, normally the cheaper broadsheets would have described him as a hacker, thankfully computerworld comprehend the difference.
