Loopia, one of the largest web hosting companies in Sweden, fell victim to a computer scam that leaked customer data, affecting around 100,000 customers, the company announced on Friday.
The web host is searching for possible weaknesses in their system that may have enabled hackers to breach their network. Extra security measures have already been introduced.
To be safe, customers were advised to update their user information, as hackers had accessed the customer database, including personal information required when signing up for an account, contacts and encrypted (hashed) passwords.
