Stock trading and investing app Robinhood infiltrated, leaving thousands hacked

Popular stock trading and investing app Robinhood has suffered a security breach. Following an investigation the company has revealed that upwards of 2,000 Robinhood Markets accounts could have been compromised by hackers, according to a report from Bloomberg.

Reports of the hack originally appeared last week, but Robinhood has been cagey with its response. It has admitted that customers have been targeted, in limited numbers according to officials, but it also maintains that access to accounts had been obtained using external email addresses not related to Robinhood. The cybercriminals then used the email addresses to gain access to user accounts at Robinhood.
