Tens of millions of data leaks on the Neopets virtual pet website

The virtual pet website Neopets recently launched its own NFT to improve their meta universe architecture. It didn’t want to attract the attention of hackers and become a hot target. It was soon broken and data leakage occurred.

The Neopets team recently admitted that its website has been attacked by hackers, and the account information of 69million users may be at risk of disclosure. The leaked information includes user name, password, account information and IP address information.

Neopets is a virtual pet website, originally called Neo. Users can set up an account on the website and then have their own virtual pet Neo pet. Neo pets can be purchased through virtual currency earned on the website or real currency. Neo pet operates a paid play version, Neo pet premium, which also sells Neo products.

In the website statement, the team asked users to change their passwords immediately. However, according to foreign media reports, hackers can obviously maintain the background login of the site, and the evidence is that the information of the newly created account can also be immediately dug out by hackers.

Subsequently, the Neopets team confirmed the attack through unofficial channels, saying that it was indeed a security incident, and was also investigating and repairing it as soon as possible. The hackers’ access may not have been blocked. An anonymous person took the opportunity to disclose that their system has long been riddled with holes and leaked countless data. This is only the first time it has been put on the table, and the authenticity is unknown.
