A hacker attack made on Zoom - accounts hacked and sold


May 4, Fineko/abc.az. Hackers put more than half a million login details for the teleconferencing app Zoom on the dark Web.

ABC.AZ reports with reference to the foreign media that the data was published by the Sunday Times newspaper.

According to information, specialists of cybersecurity company Cyble purchased a database of more than 500,000 hacked Zoom accounts on the darknet, put up for sale by hackers, almost for nothing: one penny per account. The seller was a Russian-speaking telegram user. Since some accounts belong to Cyble customers, the company was able to determine their authenticity. Hackers posted data such as sales email addresses, username and password, chat connection, and video conference management pin codes.

Because of the coronavirus pandemic, the number of Zoom users has increased due to the mass migration of companies and schools to the remote format. So, last December about 10 million people used the services daily, and in March - 200 million ones.
