June Breaches

The Biggest Breaches and Hacks of June 2016 Infographic

Jul 07, 2016 By Paul Curran

Each month, we hear about a whole new cascade of security breaches that each bring to mind that saying that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.  June was no different. 


Starting the month off was a massive MySpace hack that could end up being the biggest breach of all time with over 360 million usernames and passwords stolen. Mid-month we learned of a possible Wendy’s POS breach and of a rogue T-Mobile employee trying to pilfer customer data on the dark web. And just last week, the Quora account of Google CEO Sundar Pinchai was hacked.


Check out the infographic below to read about all of June’s breaches and hacks. Viewing on a mobile? Click the infographic to enlarge.
