    'Weebly' web-hosting service hacked, 43 million credentials stolen

    Editor
    The web design platform Weebly was hacked in February, according to the data breach notification site LeakedSource. Usernames and passwords for more than 43 million accounts were taken in the breach, although the passwords are secured with the strong hashing algorithm bcrypt.

    Weebly said in an email to customers that user IP addresses were also taken in the breach.

    “We do not believe that any customer website has been improperly accessed,” Weebly said in the notice to users.” The company also said that it does not store credit card information, making fraudulent charges unlikely."

    LeakedSource said it received the Weebly database from an anonymous source and notified Weebly of the breach. In addition to the customer notification emails, LeakedSource claims that password resets are being issued — but, if you’re a Weebly user and you don’t receive a password reset, you probably want to change your password anyway.

    Well at least the passwords aren't stored in plain text and they're actually encrypting it. Sad still however how big corporations still can't get it right.
