These days, the boom of mobile gaming has brought a breakthrough in the technology market as it has churned out to be a significantly affluent business globally on the digital platform. Analysts have recorded magnificent business revenues in the mobile gaming world that has changed the faces of many developers. One such developer is Supercell.
It was really awesome when the hot news hit the headlines; the superb developer has made $5.15 million as single day revenue. The data was fetched from the internal sales team via a hacker this week. Any spy with having paramount ethical expertise leaked the data, compromising the security of the Facebook accounts of the users in the company and later circulated the developer images of sales figures and internal audience.
According to the snapshots from Re/code, the developer with its most remarkable developments like Clash of Clans, Hay Day, and Boom Beach all together generated revenue of $5.15 million with 29.4 million active users on February 7. It was later revealed that the hack was due to sort of retribution. As per the hacker, he warned the developer about the security threat but they did not pay any attention and so he taught them a lesson by leaking their data.
Later, it was investigated and found that the hack was successful as Ethical Spectrum got access to the internal network and penetrated into the social media tool called Engagor. As per the CEO of Engagor, their app is to manage Supercell’s Facebook Pages and the app lost control. When the attack was alerted, the Engagor authorities shut down the account in few minutes and most surprisingly it lost its own security standards.
After all, the hack created a high alert among all the companies operating in the digital platform and raised enormous questions on the security standards of so-called business tycoons. The data may be a pride, but again what would have happened if some vital and classified information had been hacked having high importance for the company.
Just after the attack, Ethical Spectrum tweeted a snapshot of an email sent by the CEO of Supercell to its employees, stating not to comment mush on the attack and continue their job normally. However, the attack may be a crucial one, but it also leaked a crucial data of pride. The CEO also added saying that if we think of the hack the whole day then certainly we are physiologically defeated by the hacker.
With the dawn of advanced technology on the mobile platform, the threats are also boosting on technology aspects. So, whether it’s a success in other hand or loss in the other, such questions have puzzled the technical master minds on the planet. However, it’s time to celebrate the success of mobile platform and think of the positive aspects only.
