Hackers penetrate Hostinger company's 14 million users data

Hostinger, which has leaked 14 million subscribers through an API database, has been hacked by a new report, while the company said it faced unauthorized access to user databases last Thursday.

According to the techcrunch, the company confirmed in a statement on its official blog, that the leaked databases contain information for millions of subscribers of the Hostinger services, following the penetration of one of the company’s servers, via a code that allows access to its systems without the need for a user name or password , which made the hacker able to easily access corporate systems including API databases.

The report pointed out that the hacked user data includes names, passwords and e-mail addresses, and pointed out that this violation affected 14 million users, which represents a large proportion of the company, especially as it has 29 million subscribers in its records only.

The report pointed out that the Hostinger was aware of the process of hacking through an alert pointed to the penetration of one of the company’s servers, which prompted it to update the data encryption, but at the same time, the hackers did not have access to the financial data of users and payment method, not even the files of their sites.
