authentification forte

Le service PLEX, spécialisé dans la diffusion de films dans les télévisions connectées, piraté. Les clients sont invités à changer leur mot de passe.

Des pirates informatiques ont réussi à prendre la main sur le forum et le blog du serveur de l’entreprise Plex. La société, dont le logiciel éponyme permet de diffuser des films, photos et vidéo sur sa télévision connectée, vient d’avertir ses clients et propose de changer le mot de passe utilisé pour accéder à ses services. Le pirate aurait eu accès aux adresses IP, messages privés, courriels et aux mots de passe (chiffrés MD5, NDR) du forum.

Dans un message, la société a attribué le problème à une vulnérabilité PHP/IPB qui a permis au pirate de mettre la main sur les données. DataSecurityBreach.fr peut confirmer qu’un pirate, du nom de Savaka, a réclamé 1500 £ pour ne pas diffuser les informations volées. Il a prouvé son passage en modifiant la page index de l’administration du site.

Dear Plex User,

Sadly, we became aware this afternoon that the server which hosts our forums and blog was compromised. We are still investigating, but as far as we know, the attacker only gained access to these parts of our systems. Rest assured that credit card and other payment data are not stored on our servers at all.

If you are receiving this email, you have a forum account which is linked to a plex.tv account. The attacker was able to gain access to IP addresses, private messages, email addresses and encrypted forum passwords (in technical terms, they are hashed and salted). Despite the password encryption measures, we take your privacy and security very seriously, so as a precaution, we’re requiring that you change your password.

Be sure to choose a strong password, never share it, and never re-use passwords for different accounts! Even better, use a password manager (1Password, for example) to manage a unique password for you. Access to your Plex account will be blocked until you do so.

Please follow this link to choose a new password.
We’re sorry for the inconvenience, but both your privacy and security are very important to us and we’d rather be safe than sorry!
We will post more detailed information on our blog shortly. Thanks for using Plex!

The Plex Team
