Data Breach Hits 22 Million Web.com, Register.com, Network Solutions Accounts
Threat actors may have stolen around 22 million records of current and former customers of Web.com and its subsidiaries Network Solutions and Register.com. The breach occurred at the end of August of this year, but the popular domain registrars did not discover it until October 16. The exposed data was accessed via a “limited number” of systems that were compromised by the attackers.
The stolen data includes names, addresses, phone numbers, email addresses, and subscription information. The companies said they “do not believe” credit card information was affected by the breach, but recommended customers to monitor their accounts and report any suspicious activity. The firms are also forcing customers to reset their passwords, even though there was no indication that login credentials were compromised.
