Security training platform CTF35 gets hacked

News by Ava Fedorov

Late last night, IT security training platform CTF365 was hacked, resulting in the leak of more than 10,000 user credentials.

CTF365 took to Twitter to respond to the incident: “Sony, Yahoo, Apple, Microsoft has been compromised. Now our turn. Looks like we're important too. Investigating and let you know. Thanks.” 

Meanwhile hacking specialist, Tomasz Miklas, tweeted an image of the full headers of the malicious emails sent by attackers from the CTF365 account. Most of the emails were sent out between 19:00 and 20:00 GMT last night.

As of this afternoon, the CTF365 website remains unavailable, with the company insisting that it is continuing to work on the investigation. It has also stressed that all passwords are hashed and salted.
