Avast blog: The rise of the OGUsers hacking group

The hacker’s forum called OGUsers has ironically been a tempting target for criminals, with a series of at least three successful hacking attempts in the past couple of years: Once in May 2019, a second time in March 2020, and a third time just last week. In my post for Avast’s blog, I talk about how this forum came to be and its involvement in a series of earlier hacks that it originated as well as more specifics on the three attempts. And a few suggestions on what you can do to prevent your account data from being compromised.
