Papaki.gr's security team informed the company's customers about a breach in its infrastructure. The email states:
Our team recently detected unauthorized third-party access to our systems. As a security precaution, we strongly recommend that you enable 2FA (two-factor authentication) on your account by following these simple steps and modify the service passwords you have with us.
To prove that this is a legitimate email communication, we also created a blog post on our official website, here.
We recently had evidence that an unauthorized third party had gained access to our systems around July 2023.
We are taking this matter seriously and are actively working to address the situation to protect our customers and their data. In response, we immediately launched an investigation to determine the impact on our customers.
Interim results of this ongoing analysis show that:
There is a risk that the third-party attacker was able to access user accounts, although current evidence suggests that unauthorized access likely only occurred to two individuals from our customer base.
What data of yours may have been affected?

We are working on an additional security feature that willehi further authorization by you when you make significant changes to services in your account.

What you have to do?
We encourage you to implement the following practices to improve the security of your account:

3. If you use your credentials from Papaki for other third parties or services, you should change them immediately.
