OPSWAT, a leading cybersecurity solutions provider offering antivirus software and related products, has fallen victim to a severe security breach. On the detection date of 15-12-2023, our #NinjaDefender team discovered that the hacker known as “NinjaDefender” had successfully breached OPSWAT’s domain, opswat.com. As a result, a staggering amount of 122 bytes of data were stolen, including sensitive information such as emails. This breach highlights the urgent need for robust security measures within the cybersecurity industry.

Where and How?

The security breach occurred within the domain of opswat.com, the online home of OPSWAT. Despite their reputation as a provider of cybersecurity solutions, OPSWAT was unable to fend off the determined attacker. The breach was detected by our #NinjaDefender team, who continuously scan the dark web for leaked security holes.

The stolen information, consisting of a mere 122 bytes, may seem insignificant at first glance. However, even a small amount of compromised data can have dire consequences. In this case, the stolen emails could potentially be used for phishing attacks, identity theft, or other malicious activities. It is crucial for OPSWAT and other organizations to enhance their security protocols to prevent such breaches in the future.
