WHO confirm staff credentials leak

The World Health Organization (WHO) said the recent leak of 450 active WHO email addresses and passwords along with credentials of thousands working on the response to the coronavirus pandemic didn’t put the organization’s systems at risk. Explaining that its systems were largely spared because “the data was not recent,” WHO said in a release that “the attack did impact an older extranet system, used by current and retired staff as well as partners.” Credentials from WHO, the CDC and Gates Foundation recently started making their way onto the likes of 4chan, Pastebin and Twitter, with the latter taking steps to remove them earlier this week.
