Havenly Data Breach

In July, Havenly.com, which is a United States-based interior design web site, disclosed a data breach after a hacker posted a database containing 1.3 million user records for free on a hacker forum.

On Havenly, users are able to get help designing a room in their house from certified designers.

The leaked data included a user's login name and full name, MD5 hashed password, email address, phone number, zip code, and various other data related to the usage of the site.

Havenly recently sent out data breach notifications stating that they " became aware of a potential incident" and performed a mandatory reset of all passwords. "We take the security of our community very seriously," explained the company. "As a precaution, we wanted to let you know that we recently became aware of a potential incident that may have affected the security of certain customer accounts. We are working with external security experts to investigate this matter." "However, in the meantime, out of an abundance of caution, we are logging all existing customers out of their Havenly accounts and asking our customers to reset their password when they next log in to the Havenly website. As a best practice, we also encourage all of our customers to use different passwords across all online services and applications, and to update those passwords now and on a regular basis," Havenly's data breach notification stated.

Havenly also stated that they do not store complete credit card information, and only the last four digits may have been exposed.
