Pixlr, an online photo editing platform is being trending on Google for all wrong reasons. A hacker/s named ShinyHunters has reportedly leaked the data of over 1.9 million users on a hacking platform in the early hours of today. And news is out that the leaked information includes sensitive data as well.

In what is known to our Cybersecurity Insiders, details such as login names, hashed passwords, location of users and whether they signed for the newsletter are available on a noted hacking forum from today.


ShinyHunters has tweeted that they have stolen the data from a AWS storage bucket, also storing the information related to 123RF platform that serves stock photos to users, and both the companies belong to Inmagine.

Earlier, the same hacking group was also known to have hacked the databases linked to Homechef, Tokopedia, Minted, Chatbooks, Dave, Promo, Mathway, Wattpad…etc.

Note 1- 123RF is a content selling agency that delivers royalty free pictures to users since 2005. It also serves the users with services such as photo editing with a facility to add audio, video, graphics and icons along with fonts in the pictures. Founded in 2008, Pixlr works similar to 123rf by offering image editing tools & utilities that are almost free.

Note 2– Both the sites share a clubbed storage blob on Amazon Web Services, aka Amazon Cloud, and news is out that the hackers targeted the platform in November 2020 and stole the data. And as their demands were never met, the cyber crooks leaked the data now.
