mySpy- a corporation that provides an all-in-one solution for parents and partners to spy on their children or significant others respectively has disclosed an accidental leak that has jeopardized millions of private records. These records include sensitive data like passwords, text messages, contacts, call logs and even WhatsApp messages.
This isn’t the first time mySpy has accidentally impended crucial information. User data of an unknown number of people were stolen from the company’s database and uploaded to the dark web back in May 2015. The stolen data contained similar information as in today’s leak.
However, it is a criminal offense to sell spyware in the US- the country in which mySpy is based. But, the company goes to some extents to hide its activities to avoid legal issues. It’s not clear what?
Signing up for the service requires your iCloud credentials to spy on others.
