Another day, another data breach.
Have you ever used the online banking app called Dave?
Dave – 2,964,182 breached accounts
In June 2020, the digital banking app Dave suffered a data breach which exposed 7.5 million rows of data and subsequently appeared for public download on a hacking forum. The breach exposed extensive personal information including almost 3 million unique email addresses alongside names, dates of birth, encrypted social security numbers and passwords stored as bcrypt hashes. The data was provided to Incognito by HIBP via dehashed.com.
Please take the following actions if you have ever used Dave:
- Change your password right away and never use the same password twice (see my article on credential stuffing below)
- Send an email to them and let them know that you are aware of the breach and ask them to provide you with Identity protection and credit Monitoring services.
Please let me know if you need any help in relation to this or with anything else.
