The company identified the breach on June 27th, and then quickly performed a full forensic investigation of the incident to identify the source of the breach.

According to the company, some unknown attackers managed to gain unauthorized access to its servers and downloaded a partial data backups for surveys conducted before May 3rd 2018.

Typeform confirmed that it patched the issue within just half an hour after identifying the intrusion, and emailed all the affected users, warning them to watch out for potential phishing scams, or spam emails.

Also, if customers collected payments via Typeform's Stripe integration, all of their audience's payment details are safe.

One of its customers, Monzo, a digital mobile-only bank that had used Typeform's service to collect survey results in the past, also conducted an initial investigation of the incident and confirmed that "some personal data of about 20,000 people are likely to have been included in the breach."

"For the vast majority of people, this was just their email address. For a much smaller proportion of others, this may have included other data like their Twitter username or postcode. We’ve published a full breakdown at the bottom of this post," Monzo CEO Tom Blomfield wrote on its website.

Yesterday, Global entertainment ticketing service Ticketmaster also admitted that the company has suffered a security breach that exposed some of their customers personal and payment information to unknown hackers.
