Description:

In April 2019, the social planning website for managing online invitations Evite identified a data breach of their systems. Upon investigation, they found unauthorised access to a database archive dating back to 2013. The exposed data included a total of 101 million unique email addresses, most belonging to recipients of invitations. Members of the service also had names, phone numbers, physical addresses, dates of birth, genders and passwords stored in plain text exposed. The data was provided to HIBP by a source who requested it be attributed to "JimScott.Sec@protonmail.com".

Recommendations

  • Change your password on Evite. If you used that password anywhere else, change it on those other sites.
  • Avoid reusing passwords! Get a password manager or book
  • Avoid using your CSDO account for personal business
  • If you use Evite with a personal email address, change your password for that too and anywhere you may have reused the same password!
