Bitdefender Hacked

[ August 03, 2015 ]

One of the world’s leading anti-virus solutions vendor BitDefender has been hacked by a hacker going by the name of DetoxRansome. It appears that hackers made off with a “very limited” number of customer usernames and passwords, and is threatening to release the data publicly unless ransom demands are met. The issue affected roughly 1 percent of Bitdefender’s SMB customers, the company spokesperson said. Enterprise and consumer customers were not affected. The hackers have already exposed 250 BitDefender customer usernames and passwords as proof of the hacking. The criminals claim that the stolen logins were stored in the Amazon Elastic Web cloud in an unencrypted state. The issue was the result of human error. During an infrastructure increase, a single server was deployed with an outdated software package that had a known flaw, enabling the extraction of information, but not a full system compromise, said Catalin Cosoi, chief security strategist at Bitdefender.

EVGA is the latest motherboard manufacturer to enter with their solution coming from the ASMedia direction and providing a single Type-C port on a micro-ATX product. The biggest change from the original X99 Micro, aside from the increase in SATA ports, is the inclusion of USB 3.1 Type-C connectivity. It has great features – Intel X99 Express Chipset, Up to 3-Way SLI Support, Onboard CPU Temperature Monitor, mATX Form Factor, Audio Isolation for Superior Sound, Highly Efficient 6-Phase Digital VRM, Onboard Power, Reset and Clear CMOS, Black Nickel CPU ILM, Built in USB 3.1 Type-C port, 10x SATA 6G ports, M.2 Socket M Supports up to 32Gbps.
