5.1 million records were taken from the investigators’ database, according to the investigation into the data breach.
In the aftermath of the breach
29k April has been found to be a member of the Hacking Team’s security team. She was in charge of looking into claims that an internal system had been hacked.
The investigation has shown that on April 29, an unknown hacker sent an email to Hacking Team’s system administrators about the data breach and asked for a ransom. The stolen files were on a Dropbox account that was linked to in the email. After getting this email, the security team at Hacking Team started looking for signs that someone had broken into their systems. They also tried to reach April, who was out of town at the time, but failed.
After looking at the data that had been stolen, our security team found no signs that the Hacking Team’s networks had been broken into. Instead, it looked like April was tricked into giving up her passwords, which were then used to get into her own email account. We think the hacker got into April’s network by sending her an email with a malicious link or attachment or by getting her to click on a fake website URL. This made her laptop vulnerable and gave him access to her network.
April 29, 2019
Our look into what happened in March 2019 is still going on. We found that the April 29th release had over 5,100 lines of code, but the April 4th release had only 1,400 lines of code. This was during a time when we think one or more files related to our test suite were changed on purpose in a way that would hurt performance.
