Mspy Hacked by Anonymous
You must know what is called “hacking” and “hacker”. Hacking is an activity that enters a computer system or other operational system run by a hacker. The goal is to search for holes / bugs on the system to be entered, in another sense looking for the security point of the system. Perhaps hacking can be useful when someone sets up a fake account about you, and then you enter the account operational system that he owns to improve your name. But what if the hacking activity is done by people who are not responsible and have other purposes or as a sign that there has been unfair competition if the hacking occurs in a company or government agencies.
It is indeed proven. Recently, the mSpy company was in an uproar. News popping up everywhere because mSpy applications have been hacked by irresponsible parties. The mSpy app is an app that enables others to monitor targets via their phone. As a result of these hacking activities, there are about 400,000 personal data mSpy users posted on the black market website. For hackers, it aims to make money because with the existence of the black market website, they can sell someone personal data to others who hate it or are looking for important information to know his personal life. Of course, it is very harmful. MSpy is a spy app that always offers potential customers and customers to “keep kids safe, and shape effective employee work”. This allows you to monitor someone about his or her personal life, personal data, text messages, call logs, photo and video files, and even record what happens to your target phone.
Information from journalist Brian Krebs, in which he specializes in syber security reporting, especially the black market website. It claims that the mSpy customer database has been hacked and that the user’s data assets have been posted on the black market website and can only be accessed via “Tor”. However, the information published on May 15, 2017 says that the mSpy data download has been temporarily disabled. Anonymous hackers claim that there has been a full leak of databases causing more than 400,000 users with highly sensitive personal information such as Apple IDs, associated passwords, data tracking, payment details, photos, videos, text messages and other security has been leaked by them .
