WeTransfer Security Incident Sent Files to the Wrong People
A security incident at the highly popular WeTransfer file sharing service has violated the privacy of an unknown number of users whose files were sent to the wrong people. The incident occurred on June 16th and 17th.
WeTransfer is informing impacted users, and claims that it does not yet know what caused the incident. The company has not only blocked the download links to affected transfers, but has also forced a password reset for various user accounts, which could mean the issue was not caused by a technical error.
