Brief Overview

CyberNews.com is a unique project connecting Information Security researchers, journalists and writers around one mission – to inform and educate the general public from all over the world about online security and privacy risks.

The CyberNews Investigation team uses white-hat hacking techniques to find and safely disclose cybersecurity threats and vulnerabilities that impact people’s privacy and security. Part of our mission is to help organizations maintain or improve their online privacy and security. We inform organizations about their vulnerabilities, data leaks and other issues and work together to help fix these issues, following standard disclosure processes and practices. We publish the results of our research, experiments, and findings in order to help organizations patch the vulnerabilities, and for the general public to be aware of the potential misuse of their personal data.

The CyberNews Editorial team provides cybersecurity-related analysis, opinions by industry insiders, and news related to careful online choices. We have also developed a personal data leak checker as a free resource for anyone to quickly see if their accounts have been compromised in a data breach. In every research article, we also include a step-by-step guide of what to do next if a user’s data was leaked, or if any software used is vulnerable. We also fill our website with helpful guides and tutorials so ordinary users, businesses or organizations can learn how to make their everyday online experience safer and more private.

Our research and articles have had significant impact in the cybersecurity field. Google removed 99 dangerous mobile apps from its Play store, consumer products such as unsecure wifi routers were removed from Walmart, and many unsecured databases were closed due to CyberNews’ investigations.

The CyberNews.com project is the go-to place for cybersecurity investigations, advice and news that help people navigate a safe path through their increasingly complex digital lives.
