Robinhood stock trading and investment app infiltrated and thousands hacked




Popular stock trading and investment app Robinhood has suffered a security breach. After an investigation, the company found that more than 2,000 Robinhood Markets accounts may have been compromised by hackers, according to a report by Bloomberg.

Reports of the hack originally appeared last week, but Robinhood has been cagey with its reaction. It was admitted that customers were targeted in limited numbers, according to officials, but it is also alleged that accounts were accessed through external email addresses unrelated to Robinhood. The cyber criminals then used the email addresses to gain access to user accounts at Robinhood.
