A couple of hackers known as Bch195 and HaxOr managed to breach the website of the world renowned electronics manufacturer Philips, defacing one of the official site’s subdomains.
informs that the hackers not only defaced the microsites
subdomain, but they’ve also leaked tons of information from the site’s databases.
A Privatepaste document reveals data such as user IDs, names, email addresses, country names, and occupations. From another part of the database the hackers allegedly managed to obtain 200,000 email addresses which they plan on selling.
A final link proves that they also gained access to purchase information, but fortunately no credit card data is involved.
However, a screenshot reveals that they accessed Philips websites from all over the world and since it’s clear that the data breach’s purpose was to make a profit, the extent of the damage could be great.
Users who registered accounts on Philips websites, depending on the information they supplied, are advised to be on the lookout for malicious operations that may target their assets.
