Hacked Website

Nimbuzz was the victim of a recent hack from an Iranian hacker on a number of its websites, including nimbuzz.com, developers.nimbuzz.com, shop.nimbuzz.com, services.nimbuzz.com, nimbuzzout.com, get.nimbuzz.com and profile.nimbuzz.com.

Currently, the websites have been restored. There doesn’t appear to be a motive behind the attack, but as you can see from the above image, it appears that his reasoning was to point out how vulnerable the websites are and how easily their security systems can succumb to outside tampering.

According to The Hackers Post, the hacker had somehow managed to get into the server in order to deface the domain and its subdomains, which appear to be hosted on the same web server.

Nimbuzz hasn’t responded to inquiries regarding the hacking, but the company has started making strides to deal with their security problems. Back in April, the company launched a program where users can submit vulnerability reports to the company in an attempt to thwart any unseen bugs and issues on the website. Hopefully, these attempts by Nimbuzz will pay off and there will be no further issues with the company’s websites.
