Syrian Electronic Army strikes VoIP provider Viber

Posted by Jason Diaz Categories: Corporate News, Internet

Viber Hacked

The Syrian Electronic Army strikes again at another VoIP provider, this time, Viber. We reported the cyber attacks on Tango, now it seems that the pro-Assad militant cyber group claims allegedly that it was able to download backups of Viber's database, which includes but it's not limited to phone numbers, device IDs and, supposedly, push notification tokens. Along with the purported intrusion, some Viber pages have been defaced. Viber has come forward and has stated that the intrusion is mostly harmless to customers of their VoIP services since they claim that the most vital user information is kept in a different database that can't be exploited by outsider threats. As always, Viber requests that 200,000 users be vigilant and report any suspicious activity with their accounts.

Today the Viber Support site was defaced after a Viber employee unfortunately fell victim to an email phishing attack. The phishing attack allowed access to two minor systems: a customer support panel and a support administration system. Information from one of these systems was posted on the defaced page.

It is very important to emphasize that no sensitive user data was exposed and that Viber’s databases were not “hacked”. Sensitive, private user information is kept in a secure system that cannot be accessed through this type of attack and is not part of our support system.

We take this incident very seriously and we are working right now to return the support site to full service for our users. Additionally, we want to assure all of our users that we are reviewing all of our policies to make sure that no such incident is repeated in the future. - Viber

Maintain this point in your mind that connections which are established with time are
more trustworthy than acquired by income. Be sure to download the
latest version of Instagram on your mobile device. Learn how to weed out websites that
looks promising, but uses bots, automation and fake accounts.

Try using Gmail’s reverse e-mail lookup system to see what kind of information you can uncover about the identity associated with the e-mail address that has been sending you unwanted e-mail.
If this happens with you almost daily then the suggestion would be to carry out Gmail backup to PST procedure.
As a result, marketers have to design their campaigns
in a way so as to create maximum impact on people in a limited amount of time.
