Cloudflare Inc., a provider of cloud content delivery, said that it had been the subject of an attack resembling the one that compromised Twilio.
The hackers employed a tactic known as social engineering or phishing. Attackers create texts or emails with the intention of duping a recipient into divulging sensitive information at that point. The attackers in this instance were looking for login information.
According to Cloudflare’s Chief Executive Matthew Prince and team members Daniel Stinson-Diess and Sourov Zaman, it was a sophisticated attack that specifically targeted personnel and systems, leading them to anticipate that most firms would likely be compromised.
