Vevo hacked as OurMine releases 3.12TB of internal files

Vevo hacked as OurMine releases 3.12TB of internal files”

OurMine - the hacking group behind the recent WikiLeaks takeover and other breaches like HBO, Netflix, the WWE, and Marvel - claimed responsibility for the hack and posted 3.12TB of Vevo's internal files online.

OurMine over the past few years has targeted numerous companies and high-profile individuals, evidently as a guerrilla-style marketing effort for its security services.

New York-based Vevo is jointly owned by Universal Music Group, Sony Music Entertainment, Warner Music Group, Abu Dhabi Media, and Alphabet (Google's parent).

Vevo, the music video platform, has been hacked. There was some sensitive information to be found though, including the fire alarm code for the company's offices. The hacking group chose to leak the information after a Vevo employee supposedly told the group to "F**k off" after it informed the company it had the files.

OurMine didn't explain how they'd gained access to the data, but in a statement to Variety, Vevo attributed the compromise to "a phishing attack through LinkedIn". "We have addressed the issue and are investigating the extent of exposure".

KitGuru Says: This has been an unusual development given that OurMine doesn't typically leak large amounts of data.

Despited the public airing, OurMine insisted they would delete the data if contacted by a Vevo representative - and they seem to have kept their word.
