The anti-DDos company Staminus communications was hacked last Thursday,  March 10th. It included customers data but was not reported as an actual breach until sometime on Friday. According to the hacker news, the types of information breached include the following:
  • Customers usernames
  • Hashed passwords
  • E-mail addresses
  • Customer real names
  • Customer credit card data in plain text
  • Customers support tickets
  • Server logs data
  • Chat logs
  • Source code of some of the company’s services including Intreppid
  • Staminus’ main database
  • Database of one of Staminus’ clients, the Ku Klux Klan (KKK)

Apparently, the hackers took control of the routers, reset them to factory settings and brought down the company’s network. They also stole the database and dumped it online’.  According to reports, it included about 15 Gbs of data. While the investigation continues, the customers have been asked to scrutinize their card statements and reset passwords to their accounts. More information is available on Krebs.
