Mail and data were stolen from Mailchimp customers

The online service provider has said that the data was stolen through a password reset and not a physical hack. Mailchimp, one of the most popular online newsletter service providers globally, has admitted to being hacked. Though only a few customers have been affected, this attack might set a precedent for future hacking attempts on email services.

The case

Mailchimp, a specialist newsletter service, has also been the victim of a hacking attack. Fortunately, only a very small number of users were affected, according to the company, with only a few hundred accounts’ data falling into the wrong hands, and these users were notified immediately. In addition to personal data, API keys were also stolen.
