After Facebook and LinkedIn, Clubhouse suffers data leak of 1.3 million users. Or does it?
CEO said "it's false". Snowden that he will end his Twitter sabbatical.
The leaked data on a popular hacker forum includes names, social media profile names, and other details. CEO Paul Davison said during the town hall: “No, this is misleading and false, it is a clickbait article, we were not hacked. The data referred to was all public profile information from our app.”
This week the whistleblower and cybersecurity expert Edward Snowden announced on a crowded room he will end his Twitter sabbatical.
Facebook does not plan to notify the 533 million users exposed. LinkedIn wasn't hacked (this time!), but instead was victimized by attackers who figured out how to collect publicly available user info on a massive scale.
Clubhouse is reportedly in talks for a funding round that values the company at $4 billion.
