3.12 TB of Data Leaked from VEVO by Hackers

by Harikrishna Mekala

Most famous music artists publish their videos within Vevo these days. The organization a joint investment between Warner Music Group, Sony Music Entertainment, Universal Music Group, Alphabet Inc and Abu Dhabi Media has taken the place that MTV and MuchMusic used to have in producing music videos to the global public.

Vevo has acquired about $200 million USD in advertisement revenue this year, on the power of the tremendous demand of videos from musicians such as Taylor Swift, Beyonce, and Rihanna.

Well now, Vevo proves that they’ve been hit by a tremendous cyber attack.

OurMine has declared contract for the attack.

The group has before taken over Mark Zuckerberg’s Pinterest and Twitter accounts, taken over HBO’s Twitter account, attacked BuzzFeed and TechCrunch and killed WikiLeaks’ DNS.

Through a LinkedIn phishing scam, OurMine was able to negotiate a Vevo employee’s account for Okta, an app used to sign into workplace systems. From there, they were obviously able to gain a way to Vevo’s media area servers.

About 3.12 TB of physical files have been leaked online, which add videos, internal office documents, promotional material, yet to be adopted social media content, and knowledge about recording artists confirmed to the participating record companies.
