How was data breached at Mathway?

Popular maths problem solving application Mathway experienced a hack in January 2020 in which more than 25 million users’ data was stolen. The hacker in this situation is known as ShinyHunters and is responsible for previous cyber attacks on other companies. The Mathway data was put up for sale on a dark web marketplace after it was stolen. The details included email addresses and hashed passwords and was up for sale at a price of $4,000 in Bitcoin or Monero. It is distressing when any personal information is breached during a hack, especially in this case where the data is then sold on the dark web for any cybercriminal to use.

We can put you in touch with expert data breach solicitors who are putting together a collective group claim that will bring together the large number of Mathway users. Compensation is payable, not only for any specific financial or other losses you have incurred, but also for any distress caused by the data breach which could have left you open to the risk of fraudulent activity.

Frequently Asked Questions

Users have the right to expect that any personal or financial data that they have shared with an organisation or application, such as Mathway, is securely stored and handled. When data protection standards have fallen short, and in this case a hack has enabled unauthorised access to your personal data, you can make a claim for compensation.

Even though no financial data was breached in this case the distress victims would experience from knowing their personal information has been accessed and how it could be used means they are eligible for compensation. Data being sold on the dark web could leave people more exposed to future fraudulent attempts from cybercriminals such as phishing attacks. If you are contacted by a person or company trying to get more personal data from you don’t reveal anything until you can confirm their legitimacy.

Also, in this case Mathway is commonly used by children and students as it provides useful help with mathematical problems. This means that the stolen email addresses and passwords are likely to belong to young people which would be very worrying for the parents.

If you think you may have a valid Mathway data breach claim then get in touch with us and we will put you in touch with data breach experts who will make enquiries for you and confirm whether or not you have a valid claim worth pursuing.

We can put you in touch with legal experts who are putting together a group claim whereby the large number of customers can be part of a collective claim for Mathway data breach compensation. Even if the breach has not led to any direct financial losses to you, you are still entitled to claim compensation for distress caused by the data breach.
