OurMine Claims Vevo Hack, Releases 3.12TB of Data

Group known for claiming responsibility for hacking Mark Zuckerberg's Twitter account and the WikiLeaks' DNS attack says it's behind the Vevo breach.

A massive security breach hit entertainment company Vevo, with approximately 3.12TB of its documents and files pilfered and posted online, according to Gizmodo.

Vevo, a joint-venture comprised of Universal Music Group, Alphabet, Sony Music Entertainment, Abu Dhabi Media, and Warner Music Group, confirmed the breach and attributed it to a LinkedIn-related phishing scam, Gizmodo says.

OurMine, which claimed responsibility for hacking Mark Zuckerberg's Twitter account and other notable hacks, says it is also responsible for the Vevo hack.

The released documents include promotional materials, videos, weekly music charts, and office documents as well as sensitive material like instructions for setting the alarm at a Vevo facility, the report says.
