Keap Customer's Accounts Compromised (Limited Accounts) Due To Password Sharing
Keap Notifies Clientbase of Limited Account Compromises
On October 26th, Keap notified its customer-base via email and official user groups of the security incident involving limited account compromises. Further to the notification, Keap's security team also shared some common best practices that its client base should put in place to help reduce the risk of similar incidents happening.
It is important to note that Keap's customers' accounts were accessed due to password sharing. The cyber incident occurred when a number of Keap's customers who had shared their passwords had their login credentials used by an unknown third party. The sharing of log-in credentials is a violation of Keap's rules and our advice is to never share your credentials with third parties.
Furthermore, it's important to add, that Keap (formally Infusionsoft), just like all quality companies, invests heavily in protecting itself and its clients from cybercrime. Unfortunately, as we explained in the above video, human error still plays a vital role in cybercrime (90%+ cyber crimes are a result of human error).
This may have well been the case here with Keap also.
Keap will continue to monitor the situation around the clock, and I'm sure there will be further updates to follow. DarkXposed recommends that all Keap users monitor their emails, the Keap website and join the official Keap user-group to keep updated with the latest news.
DarkXposed would like to offer all Keap users a complimentary cyber intelligence check to identify if you and your business has any credential exposure on the dark web.
Keap Users: Are Your Credentials Compromised?
As cyber threats continue to evolve, cybercriminals are becoming more and more focused on compromising your business credentials. This method is often refered to as business email compromise.
Regardless, Keap users and business owners alike need to ensure that they have ample security measures along with cyber intelligence measures in place. The Keap customer accounts compromise has taught us that business owners need to be more vigilant.
Basic security measures include:
- Don't Share User Credentials: Keap strongly recommends against sharing login credentials, even with trusted partners.
- Change Your Password: Keap initiated a forced password reset for all users. They suggest passwords should be robust, incorporating a mix of characters and unique from previous passwords.
- Enable Two-Factor Authentication: Keap also advised enabling two-factor authentication for an extra layer of security.
But these are just the basics, the beginning. It's our view that if your operating a business that holds a variety of data that you should also invest in Cyber Intelligence.
