Following the news that the Ikea TaskRabbit app is finally back online after a data breach took it out for two days. Steven Peake, Pre-Sales Engineer at Barracuda Networks commented below.

Steven Peake, Pre-Sales Engineer at Barracuda Networks:

“The breach of the Ikea TaskRabbit app again highlights that personal identifiable information from web applications carries value and is a primary target for cyber criminals. The breach increases the affected users’ risk to fraudulent activities and leaves many of its users with a task to ensure the data cannot be used to exploit other internet services. It’s another reminder that businesses must continuously monitor web applications for vulnerabilities and implement security tools to defend against unknown potential weaknesses within both hosting platforms and applications.”
