Ubiquiti hit by data breach2021-01-12 16:06 by Daniela
Networking equipment and IoT device vendor Ubiquiti Networks has sent out today notification emails to its customers informing them of a recent security breach.
In a short email to customers on Monday, the tech company said it became aware of unauthorized access to its systems hosted by a third-party cloud provider. Ubiquiti didn't name the cloud company, when the breach happened or what caused the security incident.
The servers that were accessed stored information about user profiles on the company's UI.com web portal. The site itself is used to manage devices from a remote location and as a support portal for the company's customers.
"We recently became aware of unauthorized access to certain of our information technology systems hosted by a third party cloud provider," Ubiquiti said in emails today. "We are not currently aware of evidence of access to any databases that host user data, but we cannot be certain that user data has not been exposed," the company added. "We apologise for, and deeply regret, any inconvenience this may cause you. We take the security of your information very seriously and appreciate your continued trust."
"As a precaution, we encourage you to change your password. We recommend that you also change your password on any website where you use the same user ID or password. Finally, we recommend that you enable two-factor authentication on your Ubiquiti accounts if you have not already done so."
