    Hi everybody,

    On Tuesday we had more than 7.000 failed attempt of login on SlotsMillion from China, Brazil and the Ukraine.
    After investigation, we came to the conclusion that some online casino database has been compromised.
    Let me share with you our internal Jira ticket concerning the matter.
    I've removed all sensitive information like usernames and internal links.

    I have checked out some of the user names - searched them on Google and they are not coming up, so I suspect like Alex it's a casino database (many forum members use other usernames than what they use in the fora).

    You need to make sure that you use strong passwords - always.

    Fantastic to let us know this stuff, At least players have advance access to change pass words or closer look out.

    You will not find many of casino stated the true facts as yourselfs.

    I mean this is nothing new, it happens on a daily routine but for you to let players know is good stuff from my point of view,

    I rally do not know how its all done but I did take about 6 months out once and alot of that was to work with my old man on the servers at some big company's but started to mess with my brain the computer stuff so I stuck with abit of coding

    Fair Play and I will still sign up once U.K gets the all clear

    Well done to slotsmillion for making people aware of this :thumbsup:

    Its extremely concerning that no casino has sent an email out about a data breach, possibly you could contact the customers who's accounts you can identify and possibly narrow the offending casino down by asking what casinos they all have accounts at, if only one or two appear on every list then it might give clues as to who it is.

    There is no need to use a fresh database dump for this kind of attack. There are millions of username/email/password combinations available out there. Someone told me that the gamigo database dump is still a fantastic resource for this kind of stuff. Run a little script that checks for existing usernames and then username/password login. With php and curl i could code such a script in 5 minutes. To avoid such attacks simply don't allow username parsing and finally use captcha-on-login!

    Besides that i do know that a big german roulette forum database is currently circulating.
