Hard to swallow: 17m user details stolen in Zomato security breach

Oh boy. I just tweeted this for several users, and if this is true, we are definitely lucky in one aspect, but not in the other.

This is 17 million more people who have been breached. The good news is that they used what security experts call salt to add to the hash which from what I understand makes it more difficult to crack the password.

The company is also lucky in that they got the hacker to not sell it, and that they will create a program to better fix the issues that may have been found. Check this article out.

Zomato has become the latest victim of a massive cyberattack, as the details of 17m users are stolen, including email addresses.

    Hmmm interesting, its good a deal was put with the hacker, but its nocoincidence.
    There is probably more to this story if that was the case.
    Ie, did said hackers approach the company in question with concerns before and were told to just go fuck themselves or something?
    Usually when this happens there is no nigotiation.
    I suspect we are gettonly half the story or less.
