* Hosting provider Hostinger today announced that it reset the login passwords of 14 million of its customers following a recent security breach that enabled unauthorized access to a client database. * Hostinger offered more details about the incident in a blog post today, saying that an unauthorized party accessed one of their servers and was then able to obtain further access to customer information. * This was possible because the server had an authorization token that allowed access and privilege escalation to a RESTful API used for queries about customers and their accounts, including phone numbers and home address or business address.
