Instacart Data Breach

In July, online shopping service, Instacart, published a statement saying that an investigation showed that the service “was not compromised or breached,” but referred to credential stuffing, where hackers take lists of usernames and passwords stolen from other breached sites and brute-force their way into other accounts.

The statement came after BuzzFeed News reported that data on more than 270,000 user accounts appeared to be for sale on the dark web, including the account user’s name, address, the last four digits of their credit card, and their order histories.

While Instacart says that reused passwords are to blame, many feel the company should have done more to protect against password reuse.
