Have you ever used the online tutoring platform Vedantu?
In mid-2019, the Indian interactive online tutoring platform Vedantu suffered a data breach which exposed the personal data of 687,000 users. The JSON formatted database dump exposed extensive personal information including email and IP address, names, phone numbers, genders and passwords stored as bcrypt hashes. When contacted about the incident, Vedantu advised that they were aware of the breach and were in the process of informing their customers.
Please take the following actions if you have ever used Vedantu or if you have every worked with them
1. Change your password right away and do never use the same password twice (see my article on credential stuffing below)
2. Send an email to Vedantu 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.
