BetVictor Investigating Password Breach

This story was published more than 5 years ago.

Blacklisted online betting site BetVictor has accidentally revealed a password breach for their internal systems occurred, giving outsiders the passwords for back-office systems as well as some usernames.

The document was unveiled through Chris Hogben, a security researcher. He unveiled the list by barging in through the company's customer support search box. The document was titled 'Logins/Links to Back Offices - Internal', and the sensitive data was contained within. Even worse, 11 of the passwords were easy to identify.

The logins were tied to enough permissions that there could have been a large security breach involving customer information. The file dated back to 2015, but its unknown how long the file was on the system.

BetVictor is investigating the breach and a statement read: "We are still investigating this matter with our third-party suppliers and cannot answer any specific questions at this point in time."

Never played at this casino but I remember the times when BetVictor was considered one of the top bookies of the market, obviously if I say they're not trusted any more it would be too light of a claim.
I wonder if they could be sued for that, probably they should be.
