'No evidence information used inappropriately' in WP Engine Breach

Thu, 10th December 2015, 15:52

According to a report at el Register, managed WordPress hoster WP Engine is confessing to a security breach that prompting it to reset 30,000 customers' passwords.

"At WP Engine we are committed to providing robust security. We are writing today to let you know that we learned of an exposure involving some of our customers’ credentials. Out of an abundance of caution, we are proactively taking security measures across our entire customer base. " it said in a statement yesterday.

Obviously this statement was in the form of an email to clients as there are no tweets linking to a statement and the company blog is strangely silent!

Apparently WP Engine says there was no evidence that the information was used inappropriately, but as a precaution it was invalidating passwords associated with the WP Engine account. WP Engine also says its investigation was "ongoing" and that it would update customers as soon as its security team learns more.
