StockX Reportedly Hacked With More Than 6 Million Users Affected
 

 
Sneaker marketplace StockX was reportedly hacked, exposing sensitive information of more than 6 million users worldwide according to TechCrunch's Zach Whittaker.

This past Thursday, the Detroit-based reselling platform sent out an e-mail regarding an alleged update to the site's system, urging users to reset their passwords in order to resume use of the service. However, the e-mail did not detail what lead to the update. In a statement issued by a spokesman to TechCrunch, StockX admitted that it had been alerted to suspicious activity involving the platform, but that may not have been the entire story.

According to Whittaker, an unnamed data breach seller contacted TechCrunch claiming that the information of more than 6.8 million users was stolen from StockX back in May. After being provided with a sample of 1,000 records by the seller, TechCrunch contacted the individual customers and provided them with unique information, including their real name, username combination and shoe size. Every person confirmed their data was accurate. The data is already being sold on the dark web for about $300.

Perhaps compounding the issue is the company's silence on the matter thus far. We reached out to StockX for a comment, but they did not respond. Information Security Analyst Cassie Brunetto tells us why that could be a problem for the company moving forward.

"The longer StockX takes to make a statement, the less credibility they will have," said Brunetto. "I think they handled the disclosure unethically and probably in the worst way possible. I'm curious to know what vulnerability was exploited though, because this could potentially expose holes that were or still are present in their systems and processes. As a consumer, I would be apprehensive about doing business with them going forward because I'm concerned about my data privacy and security."

Last month, StockX was valued at over $1 billion following a $110 million Series C funding round from DST Global, General Atlantic, and GGV Capital.

A ton of those accounts have basic passwords. If you have something like "12345678" or "password" as your joint you deserve to be hacked a this point lol

What's sad is they didn't hash and salt the passwords to make sure even if someone had the passwords they couldn't use it without the cipher.

For all the money stoxkx made, they should of stepped up their security game.

Well, shoes do sell for maximum profit on there. I almost created an account last month. I've never felt comfortable using them , due to the bank information they requested & a*sociated fees to transfer into your bank account with the third party after a sell. I'm already aware you can use PayPal, they're faulty as well.
