Nitro Software Hacked With Customer Data Offered For Sale On The Dark Web


Silicon Angle recently published an article on the Australian document productivity company Nitro Software Inc., who has suffered a data breach with customer data being offered for sale on the dark web.

Silicon Angle reported that the company provides services to much of the Fortune 500, was hacked sometime earlier this month. And while Nitro advised in public statement to the Australian Stock Exchange that they had been impacted by a “low impact security incident” involving “limited access to a Nitro database by an unauthorized third party,” customer data was found being offered for sale on the dark web.

K2 Cyber Security’s CTO and Co-Founder, Jayant Shukla provided commentary to Silicon Angle on how organizations can improve their web application and application workload security to help prevent data breaches like this one at Nitro.
