Vevo Music Video Service Hacked — 3.12TB Of Data Leaked
The well-known popular music video service Vevo has just joined entertainment giants, such as HBO, and became the new victim of security breach and release of internal documents & crucial data.
The well-known popular music video service Vevo, a joint venture between music giants Universal, Sony and Warner, was targeted by the hackers who leaked more than 3 terabytes of internal files.
The OurMine, a self-designating white hat group, claimed responsibility for the attack. The group does security assessments on social networks, e-mail, and iCloud accounts, by paying the fee and has already attacked high-visibility accounts, such as Mark Zuckerberg, Sundar Pichai (Google CEO), Netflix and the NFL.
The files published online were not very secret: they were mainly documents, videos, and promotional materials.
Vevo has confirmed the attack and said the source was a phishing scam through LinkedIn. A company representative said that the extent of the leak is still being investigated.
Vevo is one of the most popular music sites on the internet. Its more than 250,000 cataloged songs attract 21 million hits per month worldwide on its YouTube channel and on its own website and application as well.
After this hacker attack, the well-known popular music video service Vevo experiences a bit of what happened with HBO in July when the producer suffered leaks and scripts from Game of Thrones.
