On October 21, Nitro Software announced that it was affected by a "security incident with little impact“. The company said that no customer data was affected.

According to the company announcement at the time, there was unauthorized access in a Nitro database. The base data did not contain user and client documents. Nitro also said the incident security did not affect the company's operations, while the investigation did not find evidence that financial and other sensitive customer data has been affected.

However, more data may eventually have been violated. Η company security, Cyble, told BleepingComputer that a cyber criminal sells databases and documents that he says have been stolen from Nitro Software's cloud service.

This data is sold at a private auction with a starting price of $ 80.000.

According to Cyble, the "user_credential" database contains 70 million user data (addresses e-mail, full names, bcrypt hashed passwords, titles, company names, IP addresses and other system-related data).

The document database contains the title of the document, the date of creation and signing, and the account held by the document. It also shows whether it is public or not.
