In May 2019, Australian tech unicorn Canva experienced a significant data breach affecting 137 million users. Despite having a user base of approximately 55 million active monthly users at the time, the breach far exceeded this figure. The cybercriminal, known as Gnosticplayers, gained access to usernames, real names, email addresses, country information, encrypted passwords, and partial credit card data. The breach was publicized when the hacker contacted ZDNet. Canva responded by prompting a password reset for affected accounts and enhancing their security measures.
