Popular web hosting provider Hostinger has been hit by a massive data breach, as a result of which the company has reset passwords for all customers as a precautionary measure.

In a blog post published on Sunday, Hostinger revealed that “an unauthorized third party” breached one of its servers and gained access to “hashed passwords and other non-financial data” associated with its millions of customers.

The incident occurred on August 23 when unknown hackers found an authorization token on one of the company’s servers and used it to gain access to an internal system API, without requiring any username and password.
