Report: Popular Chinese Android Game Developer Exposes Over 1 Million Gamers to Hacking
Led by Noam Rotem and Ran Locar, vpnMentor’s research team discovered a data breach belonging to Chinese mobile gaming company EskyFun.
The company was using an unsecured server to store vast amounts of data collected from users on its games. Much of this data was incredibly sensitive, and there was no need for a video game company to be keeping such detailed files on its users.
Furthermore, by not securing the data, EskyFun potentially exposed over 1 million people to fraud, hacking, and much worse.
