Hacker breaks into Glovo’s system

1 Mins read

A hacker recently broke into Glovo’s systems last Tuesday and gained access to undisclosed information.

In a statement released by the delivery startup, the hacker gained access to a system on April 29 through an old administrator platform but was ejected as soon as the intrusion was detected.

“We can confirm that no access was gained to client card data, as Glovo does not save or store such information.”

the company said in an emailed statement.

According to Forbes, who broke the story, cyber security firm Hold Security which is said to have found the breach, cited that the hacker was selling login credentials for customer and courier accounts, with the ability to change their password.

The company did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the hacker’s motives. Hold Security could not immediately be reached for comment.

This attack comes less than a month after Glovo raised 450 million euros ($541 million) in funding, riding a wave of interest in delivery services, which have boomed during the COVID-19 pandemic.
