Discord.io, a platform enabling users to generate personalized links for their Discord channels, is set to cease operations due to a significant data breach incident. As reported by TechRadar, an unauthorized individual managed to pilfer the information of around 760,000 users. This malefactor has subsequently showcased a portion of the stolen data on Breached Forums, presumably with intentions to sell it. Visitors to the discord.io website are now greeted with a message declaring the suspension of all activities for an indefinite period.
The compromised service provider has taken the initiative to delineate the specifics of the exfiltrated data, distinguishing between what is and isn’t part of the breach. Notably, the breach encompassed the termination of ongoing premium subscriptions. Furthermore, they reveal that the hacker has not yet made any communication attempts with them. To the best of their knowledge, the integrity of their database remains uncompromised beyond the breach incident. However, they remain vigilant for any potential developments.
In this breach, the exposed data entails:
- Information on terminated premium subscriptions
- Data items that were spared from the breach remain unspecified
The closure of discord.io stems from the grave security breach that left hundreds of thousands of users’ data exposed, prompting both a retraction of premium services and an acknowledgement of the need to temporarily halt their operations.
