Networking equipment and IoT device vendor Ubiquiti reported that a possible security breach in account.ui.com, their third-party cloud provider may have exposed customer account information and credentials.

“We recently became aware of unauthorized access to certain of our information technology systems hosted by a third party cloud provider,” said Ubiquiti.

As a safety precaution, Ubiquiti advised customers to change their passwords and enable multi-factor authentication.

Ubiquiti claimed that there are no indications that third parties have viewed or gained access to users’ Ubiquiti accounts and that they cannot fully guarantee that no user data such as names and email addresses have been exposed.

“This data may include your name, email address, and the one-way encrypted password to your account (in technical terms, the passwords are hashed and salted). The data may also include your address and phone number if you have provided that to us,” explained Ubiquiti.
