I am an AMP customer and today is the first I have heard of this. I never received anything from AMP. Are there AMP customers here who have been notified of a breach? Or were only customers that potentially affected contacted?

I got the email referred to in post #25

Hi ( i deleted my name )

AMP Global Clearing, LLC (AMP) is sending you this notice to keep you updated about your data on our servers. We were recently approached by a Cybersecurity research company with a claim that they had discovered a vulnerability in one of our back-up file storage server.

AMP responded by working with its IT service providers to ensure all vulnerabilities were eliminated in that server. The Cybersecurity research company then confirmed that the vulnerability had been resolved.

We have worked with the Cybersecurity research company, to ensure that all proper steps were taken to safeguard our customers’ information.

We are in direct communication with this Cybersecurity Company and our regulatory agencies. They have confirmed the files they accessed are currently encrypted, pending the instructions of the SEC.

From our understanding, this company’s mission is to make the cyber world safer by educating businesses and communities worldwide, with the goal of helping to protect data, identifying data leaks and following responsible disclosure policy.

At this time, AMP is confident that there are no vulnerabilities on any of our servers.

Thanks Matt,


The paramount question that is going to be in each of their customers' mind is: "has my data been accessed by unauthorized parties"?

Yes, I agree and issues of security and identity theft should not be taken lightly. However, in my opinion, the company that exposed the vulnerabilities did not have the intention of distributing the data or any weaknesses they found.

I looked at the site of the company and they maintain a blog of vulnerabilities they expose within other companies while promoting the sale of their security software at the top navigation. I am not sure what to make of it.

Thank you,
Matt Z

And what about anyone that accessed the data but wasn't a white hat?

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)
Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.

I received this very same email BUT all the links in it are referring to a different and suspicious domain "http://t.hsms07.com". The email source code shows the return path for "@mail4.shared.hubspot.com". For me it seems the email is a phishing email and looks like somebody is allready using the breached data. AMP support has been informed.

Anybody else or is this just me ?

By opening that URL you get this

It may be that they are using a distribution list service to send these emails. Most companies with a large audience do that nowadays.

If that's the case, it's nothing to worry about.

This can be the case.

btw. here is an example how the links were dubbed in the email. For example https://www.ampfutures.com/contact-us/ was as follows:

 
Code
http://t.hsms07.com/e1t/c/*W5RCcFZ8_ZwGVW1Clnh73YyNfZ0/*W5V-SYK7SsJZ1MZdHrKSJ5Pb0/5/f18dQhb0Sjvg8XJ8QKW97df7c2qwv2rW2sZTQD4cv8n_Mf598jXD6prW7cmS1s8pCQ6vW51LTfw61SR7mW6b-xmr96Ls9wW96dt4f7lVx7mW7dF4v91nrCGBW2nbXHC8XWrnGN5Lnv1TH9gtSW70QtF-8lwDm2W3H9V3Z2-J-SLW2z_tPY41Q2WgV-zgqs41TlcRW3Tx3Jb5SPLR0W5SQpfr63G2PgW8QKpyr4sj3hVW2BcyM91mGWmCW1pRNVj42zNhLW7z2px_4CSvHKW51jNgk74NxZRW24ZkBW8dd_qkW4rhF6b1cWxfLN4LZQphbGz5wW5cxmC_1n-5rsW6bCsWT2gD-ywW1m7kWY2gR3VwW7mrRf037d_g9W25DK4t86t1krW5Q56C06SSJNcVcb0gH3kYc04W4p7yDT2BPM3LW8nDLGX28bFMTW5ybPPX8t3ZKCW62lbWs2GD9D7W4b7mhz8NkSBmN2lb_N8pyTcPW4sHvgL863RHtW2td_Hw8Lfd-jW7D7Hxj1Dy_KCVFkVVN2H2jd80
