Nokia shuts down dev network following hack

Nokia has closed down its developer network due to an illicit data breach attack on its systems.

Sensitive details of developers from within the network have been accessed, Nokia said. Likely compromised data includes user email addresses and, in less regularity, dates of birth and other personal data such as Skype details.

The developer network has been shut down in response to the breach.

Nokia said the unauthorised access occurred by exploiting a vulnerability in the bulletin board software that allowed an SQL Injection attack”.
