Data Breach On Roll20 4M At Risk. The tech press announced that a well-known hacker again reached the belt alleging million accounts and data exposed.
The tech press announced last night that a well-known hacker again reached the belt alleging 127 million accounts and data exposed.
The Roll20 virtual tabletop is on the victim list. Consequently, Roll20 reported that they suffered a breach of confidentiality.
The hacker says 4 million Roll20 documents. Besides, the hacker seems to be modifying the terms ‘records and accounts.’
Roll20 replied officially via their forums. They emphasize that no financial data is in danger. Moreover, they encrypted all keys.
What a relief!
Steke K, lead designer of Roll20, said;
Roll20 has earlier been identified as one of the victims of cybercriminal abuse in a study today. Although we can confirm that a violation has taken place, we are currently looking to find out all the details. For the time being, it is important to remember that the investigation reveals that the violation did not contain any financial details.
Our intelligence services are actively working to correct possible vulnerabilities in our infrastructure. Besides, we take our duty to protect the sensitive information of our users seriously.
Just the user names, email addresses, login danger, the last log-in IP and log-in time, and the last four credit card numbers are in Roll20 storage records.
For transfers we use Stripe and PayPal; the customer does all details about billing and does not affect our servers.
We use bcrypt for password cracking, meaning it cannot be reversed for use on other websites or to access Roll20.
We know that not all the details are frustrating and we are working on the full scope of this offense. As our research continues, we are constantly updating our members with details.
Worried about the leakage of your passwords? A new Chrome extension named a password checkup recently launched by Google that warns you whether you’re running a Google recognized username or password is not safe anymore. When password lists are absolutely or in part revealed after internet sale or exchanging, Google knows this.
Announcements from Roll20
Mobile Roll20 is about to arrive. But we plan to see first a shut beta and a framework that incorporates character sheets and dice. We don’t have a deadline.
Roll20 claims seven hundred people have been demanding improved network management. The Grid View was the first step of the enhancements in a modern guide.
The interactive tabletop has confirmed that updates to the programming platform would shortly be posted to make interacting with players simpler and to find time for all to enjoy.
Also revealed were new live shows. The Balikbayan: Returning Home is set for 28th September, where Indie Showcase Season 2 and Burn Bryte Season 2 (featuring the Apocalypse) are labelled as soon as they arrive.
Most notably, Roll20 matches all donations made after the conference to Code2040. A whopping $14,000 was earned at the time of writing but Roll20 equals the first $50,000.
