Another social network attacked: Clubhouse was attacked, and data of 1.3 million users was obtained. Cybercriminals did it again, audio messaging social network suffers an attack and follows Facebook and LinkedIn.
The leaked Clubhouse user data included names, information about the affected individuals’ social media profiles, and other details.
Saturday’s report of a breach of Clubhouse users’ data was just the latest case. In recent days, other social networks have also been affected by different attacks.
The data of 500 million LinkedIn users, which accounts for two-thirds of the platform’s total volume, has also been leaked and put up for sale. This data is being attempted to be sold for a 4-digit sum via cryptocurrencies.
Paul Prudhomme, an analyst at cybersecurity firm IntSights, assures Business Insider that the leaked data poses a problem for the people affected and even for their work environment, as cybercriminals could use it to attack and threaten the companies where these people work.
It should be remembered that days before the attack on LinkedIn became known, there was a very similar event on Facebook: the personal data of 533 million users of this social network were published on a well-known hacking forum. The information exposed included the full name of these users, their phone numbers, and email addresses.
