Convex – 150,129 breached accounts
In February 2023, the Russian telecommunications provider Convex was hacked by “Anonymous” who subsequently released 128GB of data publicly, alleging it revealed illegal government surveillance. The leaked data contained 150k unique email, IP and physical addresses, names and phone numbers.
If you have an account with Convex, please follow these steps:
- Change your password and make sure your new password is at least ten characters long and contains an upper case, lower case, number and symbol. You can even use a modified phrase or a line from a song if that helps you remember.
- Make sure you do not use the same password twice, leaving you vulnerable to credential stuffing.
- Find a good password manager tool to help you remember your passwords. Some of our users say that 1Password is a good tool.
- Check out Incognito’s Email Hack Check tool. All you have to do is enter your email address, and we will tell you instantly if it has been involved in one of the many data breaches that happen every day.
Let me know if you need any help.
All the best,
