Hackers Broke Samsung Systems And Accessed User Data


Samsung customer data

We know that no company can guarantee data safety, even Samsung. Recently, the latter revealed another cybersecurity incident. If you remember, much earlier this, hackers could get their hands on Galaxy source code. However, it didn’t make a huge stir because no user data suffered. As for this attack, customers’ personal information appeared in the hands of the attackers.

Samsung Confirms User Data Leak

According to Samsung, though some customer data leaked, their Social Security numbers, and credit / debit card numbers were not accessed. The company thinks hackers could access information such as “name, contact and demographic information, date of birth and product registration information.” What’s worse, there is no concrete information concerning the number of affected users. Users, whose data are in danger, the company is contacting via email.

Customers asked whether they needed to take any immediate action. But the company said no. Samsung also added that they are currently investigating what happened and will provide more information later. Moreover, if necessary, they will ask customers to take measures. As it usually happens in similar cases, Samsung recommends being attentive. Once users receive unsolicited emails, they should inform the company.

Samsung systems

Samsung reported that the hacker(s) could access its system in late July. But they understood this in early August, not immediately. Once they determined that the attacker had obtained user data, Samsung took steps to secure its systems and even brought in a third-party cybersecurity firm. Moreover, it’s also in communication with law enforcement.

“We are committed to protecting the security and privacy of our customers,” Samsung said. “We will continue to work diligently to develop and implement immediate and longer-term next steps to further enhance the security across our systems.”

    I strongly recommend to anyone that might need the help of real, honest, ethical hacker (hack4wise @gmail com) whom I came in contact with on an online forum just about a week ago and i employed this skilled cyber geek to help me spy on my partners phone alongside other activities. I had suspicions and to clear my curiosity to know if my partner was cheating on me with another, I employed the services of (hack4wise @gmail com) who served as a personal investigator and provided me with evidences of my partner’s daily activities alongside phone conversations like facebook, email, whatsapp, calls, skype, Snapchat, Instagram, Hangout, Tinder, GPS location, retrieving old deleted massages alongside others. I am sure someone out there is looking for how to solve their relationship problems, dont hesitate to contact the only real hacker writing your complains and am sure you will get all the help you need at a cheap cost.
