DeFelice (@amvinfe) writes on SuspectFile (translation): Now it’s official: the snai.it site was attacked by a Ransomware-type hacker group. The official pressure waiver was sent to SuspectFile by Snaitech’s press Office at 17:25 today 28 december 2020. The pressure waiver speaks of “a cyber attempt by unknown persons which caused, starting from last december 27, the malfunctioning of the snai.it site and of the gaming apps”. as we had foreseen both for the preventive modalities of the offline putting of the site by the IT technicians, and for the prolongation of the failure to reestablish the betting site quickly, it suggested a targeted onslaught by hackers. According to the press release, the game accounts and sensitive user data were not affected by the intrusion, “ Users are therefore reassured about their accounts – continues the press discharge – that they will not undergo any changes or lost”. But how often manage we see such claims that user data was not impacted, and then months later the entity discovers that such data was impacted but the attackers had covered their tracks well? can we really finger confident based on such assurances? record more on SuspectFile.
