DigitalOcean reveals about data breach exposing Billing Information
DigitalOcean, a cloud service provider, has started informing few customers that their billing information may have been compromised. This happened after someone exploited a vulnerability in the company’s systems.
DigitalOcean in an email to its customers said that the unauthorized access occurred between April 9 and April 22, 2021, but it was apparently only “confirmed” on April 26.
“An unauthorized user gained access to some of your billing account details through a flaw that has been fixed,” the company told customers.
As per the company, only a “small percentage” of its customers were impacted and they do not need to take any action.
The exposed billing information includes name, address, payment card expiration date, the payment card’s last four digits, and the name of the bank that issued the card. The company highlighted that it does not store full credit card data so this type of information was not exposed.
“According to our logs approximately 1% of billing profiles were impacted,” Tyler Healy, VP of Security at DigitalOcean, told SecurityWeek in an emailed statement. “This issue has been fixed and we have informed the impacted users and notified the relevant data protection authorities.”
