At this stage of the game, little confirmed about Traderie data breach.
Traderie, a video game item trading website, has disclosed it experienced a data breach that exposed users’ personal data. Gamers on popular titles like Roblox, Rocket League, and Diablo use the Traderie platform, which is owned by US software firm Akrew, as a marketplace for trading or selling in-game items. TechCrunch reports that an unauthorized third-party accessed data from users’ accounts, and that the breach also impacted Nookazon, another Akrew-owned trading website that’s specifically focused on the game Animal Crossing: New Horizons. Although Traderie didn’t provide specifics about how many users were affected or which user data was acquired, the platform collects personally identifiable info like user email addresses, Discord and Twitter usernames, and IP addresses. A seller on hacking forum BreachForums who recently claimed to be in possession of data stolen from Traderie alleges that 2.6 million users were compromised in the breach. The user also says Stripe information, which Traderie uses for processing payments, was also compromised. However, the breach notification email sent to Traderie users claims the company does “not directly store your password and any financial information is handled by the payment platform Stripe.”
Orthopedic data breach hits close to the bone.
JDSupra reports that an orthopedic care provider based out of the US state of Mississippi suffered a data breach in which an unauthorized party acquired consumers’ sensitive data. Bienville Orthopaedic Specialists LLC (BOS) says that the exposed data include names, Social Security numbers, medical information, health insurance information, usernames and passwords, financial account information, and driver’s license numbers. According to the notice of data breach filed with the Attorney General of Maine, the intruder had access to BOS’s systems between February 3, 2023, and March 5, 2023. After detecting the intrusion, BOS conducted an investigation to determine what patient data were impacted, which concluded at the end of July. BOS has sent notification letters to all affected parties.
