GoTo Says Hackers Stole Customers' Backups and Encryption Key

Tuesday January 24, 2023. 05:00 PM , from Slashdot
GoTo (formerly LogMeIn) is warning customers that threat actors who breached its development environment in November 2022 stole encrypted backups containing customer information and an encryption key for a portion of that data. From a report: GoTo provides a platform for cloud-based remote working, collaboration, and communication, as well as remote IT management and technical support solutions. In November 2022, the company disclosed a security breach on its development environment and a cloud storage service used by both them and its affiliate, LastPass. At the time, the impact on the client data had yet to become known as the company's investigation into the incident with the help of cybersecurity firm Mandiant had just begun.

The internal investigation so far has revealed that the incident had a significant impact on GoTo's customers. According to a GoTo's security incident notification a reader shared with BleepingComputer, the attack affected backups relating to the Central and Pro product tiers stored in a third-party cloud storage facility. 'Our investigation to date has determined that a threat actor exfiltrated encrypted backups related to Central and Pro from a third-party cloud storage facility,' reads the notice to customers.
