437,700 email accounts in Vietnam breached with personal information

Vietnam has faced many cybersecurity issues, like low public awareness about online security with more and more websites being defaced, and malware spreading among computers.

Nearly 437,700 email accounts with addresses ending with “.vn” (Vietnam) have recently been breached, with personal information, even passwords exposed through foreign social networks and online services.

Of the exposed email accounts, 930 have addresses ending with “gov.vn” (governmental agencies of Vietnam), according to the Vietnam Computer Emergency Response Team (VNCERT) under the Vietnamese Ministry of Information and Communications, reports BSS.

Many breached email accounts belong to Vietnam’s major economic groups and important infrastructure developers, VNCERT said, noting that a lot of staff of state agencies and corporations use their organizations’ email accounts to register for their personal accounts of foreign social networks and online services.
