Ubiquiti Networks warns of a security breach, asks customers to change passwords

Networking device manufacturer Ubiquiti Networks has disclosed a security breach, which may have exposed its customers data. In a notification posted on its website the Ubiquiti team said that the intruder gained access to some of the company’s information technology systems hosted by a third party cloud provider.

“We are not currently aware of evidence of access to any databases that host user data, but we cannot be certain that user data has not been exposed. This data may include your name, email address, and the one-way encrypted password to your account (in technical terms, the passwords are hashed and salted). The data may also include your address and phone number if you have provided that to us,” the company said.

At present, it is not clear how and when the data breach took place, or how many customers were impacted by the incident.

While Ubiquiti said that it had not seen any evidence of unauthorized access to customer’ accounts, to be on the safe side the company advises users to change their passwords and enable two-factor authentication on their Ubiquiti accounts.
