Evite e-invite website admits security breach

Evite e-invite website admits security breach (Breaches and Incidents)

At the time, a hacker named Gnosticplayers put up for sale the customer data of six companies, including Evite. The hacker claimed to be selling ten million Evite user records that included full names, email addresses, IP addresses, and cleartext passwords. ZDNet reached out to notify Evite of the hack and that its data was being sold on the dark web on April 15; however, the company never returned our request for comment. Evite said the malicious intruder stole "an inactive data storage file" that was holding information on some Evite user accounts. No financial data and Social Security Numbers were exposed, Evite said, as it doesn't collect SSNs, and all financial data is handled by a third-party vendor. Back in April, the data of 10 million Evite users was put up for sale on a dark web marketplace for ฿0.2419 (~$1,900).
