Hackers have managed to get hold of data from approximately 7 million customers of the American investment app Robinhood. The company itself has announced this.
The robbery happened last Wednesday. According to the company, hackers were able to get hold of the email addresses of about 5 million customers and the full names of another group of about 2 million people.
The cybercriminals captured additional information about 310 people, including date of birth and zip code. For about ten customers, even more, account details were involved. No customer has suffered financial loss as a result of the incident, it sounds.
The company says the hackers demanded a ransom but did not clarify whether it complied. “We immediately notified the police and are continuing to investigate the incident with the help of Mandiant, an outside security firm.”
