43 million usernames and passwords for Weebly website’s were breached. However, this wasn’t a recent event, it happened last February. Newly released information from LeakedSource has portrayed the truths behind the data breach and the total number of users effected by the breach.
LeakedSource said they obtained the database from an anonymous source and informed Weebly right away. Weebly sent out customer notifications about the breach, however those who have not yet reset their passwords are currently at risk. It is highly recommend that all Weebly users reset their account’s password as well as any other account a user may own with the same password.
