List of data breaches and cyber attacks in June 2018 – 145,942,680 records leaked

As another month ends, let’s look back at the data breaches and cyber attacks that have come to light in the last few weeks.

Earlier this month I had a conversation about cyber security that ended with someone offering the familiar opinion: “Oh, I won’t be hacked – our website isn’t very popular”. I’m sure the owner of a Winnipeg mattress store thought that too – before they were forced to pay a criminal who shut down their servers, effectively putting a halt to services and sales.

I count this month’s total of known leaked records to be 145,942,680. As ever, if I have forgotten any, please let me know.
