American technology company Ubiquiti Networks is disclosed a data breach and is notifying its customers via email.

American technology vendor Ubiquiti Networks suffered a data breach and is sending out notification emails to its customers asking them to change their passwords and enable 2FA for their accounts.

The company discovered unauthorized access to some of its systems managed by a third-party cloud provider.

The company is not aware of any access to any databases that were containing user data.

“We recently became aware of unauthorized access to certain of our information technology systems hosted by a third party cloud provider. We have no indication that there has been unauthorized activity with respect to any user’s account” reads the data breach notification sent to the customers.

“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 attackers have had access to the servers containing information related to the user accounts for the web portal ui.com, exposed records include names, email addresses, and salted and hashed passwords.

For some users also home addresses and phone numbers may have also been exposed.

The company did not provide additional details about the data breach, including how many users have been impacted.
