Unistellar Hacking Group Took Over and Wiped 12,000 Unsecured MongoDB Databases




Security experts have always warned of the risks for leaving cloud databases unprotected. However, despite back-to-back reports of open databases and the subsequent attempts to close them down, the efforts seem to go in vain. Some hackers have to wipe these unsecured databases. Reportedly, the Unistellar hacking group has wiped out more than 12,000 open MongoDB databases.
Researcher Sanyam Jain has spotted thousands of allegedly hacked/wiped out databases. As observed, a hacking group has taken over all those databases, wiping out contents and leaving a note for the owners.
