Popular news aggregation site Flipboard – one billion app downloads from Google Play and counting – has become the latest internet company to admit it has suffered a breach. We’ve covered a lot of data breaches in recent years but this one has one or two wrinkles that are worth highlighting. According to Flipboard, hackers gained access to data between 2 June 2018 and 23 March 2019, plus a short window between 21 and 22 April 2019. It’s not clear how many Flipboard users had their data compromised. Data stolen included names, Flipboard user names, email addresses and hashed passwords.
