cPanel was hacked this weekend which exposed details of its customers,including their names, contact details, and encrypted passwords.

Though hacking did not affect payment information which was kept on a separate system.

The firm warned its customers with older passwords to change them,though the possibility of its exposure is less.

   “Although current passwords are stored salted and encrypted, we are accelerating our move to stronger password encryption at the same time in order to minimize disruption. In order to safeguard the system, we will force all users with older password encryption to change their passwords,” said the company’s e-mail.

Though the breach is fairly minor but if attackers make use of exposed information, the customers may be badly impacted.

The company has been in control since 1997 and promises its customers to be most reliable company in web hosting industry.
