Internet casino Coinroll has announced that their player account data may have been stolen after security researcher Chris Vickery reported that 4,500 player accounts had been found on a publicly accessible outside database.
The exposed accounts were found by Vickery last month, presumably due to security vulnerabilities at the casino. After the information was publicly released, Coinroll last week admitted to the breach and asked players who opened accounts before April 7th to change their login credentials. Coinroll also announced that they are suspending operations until an investigation has been completed.
Thus far, Coinroll has said that a few accounts are claiming illegal withdrawals, although no validation of these claims has been public as of press time. The breach in security is thought to have been caused by an Ubuntu system update, which had an alteration in firewall settings that allowed access to an internal database that had no password protection.
