🚨 Alert: Major Dell Data Breach 🚨

A recent data breach at Dell has compromised 49 million customer records. A hacker, using the pseudonym Menelik, accessed Dell’s partner portal as a fake company, scraping vast amounts of data, including names and service details. This information was briefly up for sale on a hacking forum before being taken down.

Menelik exploited a lack of security checks in Dell’s API, using automated scripts to generate thousands of requests per minute, uncovering the vulnerability of accessible APIs. Despite alerting Dell to the flaw, the breach was not addressed until the data surfaced online.

Dell is now collaborating with law enforcement and a forensic team to mitigate the impact and prevent future incidents.

🔒 Stay vigilant and ensure your APIs are secure!

Been getting lots of spam emails lately. Just goes to spam box. Also my windows security will not let me open these email. Also when on web if I click on a site will not let me in. I use AT&T and use Dell items' Both have sent me emails and also regular mail about the breach. AT&T is offering free credit watch. But already pay for all 3 and have credit lock on them. Just makes it harder to get or take out a loan or get a credit check when buying a new phone. After I told them it's lock and they tried 6 times any way.

Holy cow! That's going to affect some people.

Great reason to home build computers and keep business local 🙂
