Exploit: LFI/RFI attack that injected malicious code into database.
BlankMediaGames: Game maker of ‘Town of Salem’.
Risk to Small Business: 2 = Severe: With a number as high as 7.6M users exposed, this cyberattack has the potential to be game-changing. News broke that DeHashed, a commercial breach indexing service, discovered the successful attack before Christmas and tried alerting the company, but no actions were made to secure the hacked servers and notify users until later on. Cybersecurity experts are claiming that the company’s hashing technique (PHPBB) for securing passwords was relatively weak, meaning that it is only a matter of time until hackers were able to crack them.
Individual Risk: 2.428 = Severe: Stolen user data included usernames, email addresses, hashed passwords, IP addresses, and game/forum activities. Payment information or credit card details were not exposed, but compromised information can still be leveraged to gain access to payment details on other similar accounts.
