ThreatSec has just announced on their Telegram channel that they’ve hacked Unbxd Inc., an AI-powered product discovery platform that provides brands with scaling options.
They claimed to be in possession of 22GB worth of data.
The alleged Unbxd Inc. cyberattack resulted in the publication of the company’s entire online database (22GB), including user information. The repercussions of this are still unknown.
Unbxd Inc. is not a new company, and it’s AI services are very popular among brands operating in all niches. It’s clear to see why the company became the target of ThreatSec.
We believe security online security matters and its our mission to make it a safer place.
Other cyberattacks by ThreatSec include:
Based on their claims, it seems that ThreatSec is fueled by the desire to combat injustice, corruption, and inequity.
However, Unbxd Inc. does not seem to fit its usual pattern. Given that we have no public statement from the company regarding the attack, we can’t assume anything.
One thing is clear, though. As part of “The Five Families”, ThreatSec has become even more notorious, with attacks targeting all industries.
One of their biggest attacks was against Alpha Automation when they stole 230GB of customer and financial data, internal documents, and company software.
It’s as yet unclear whether the attack against Unbxd Inc. was a larger-scale operation organized by “The Five Families” or a ThreatSec-solo operation.
If it was a solo operation, it means that ThreatSec is still working on its own, planning and carrying out attacks on targets. This might mean that Unbxd is not the last target of this hacker group.
