Nickelodeon investigates breach after leak of ‘decades old’ data

Nickelodeon has confirmed that the data leaked from an alleged breach of the company is legitimate but some of it appears to be decades old.

Proof of the alleged data leak started circulating on social media, showing an extensive collection of reportedly 500GB in documents and media files.

The data breach supposedly occurred January this year and allegedly ended with Nickelodeon blocking the unauthorized access two months later.

The TV channel’s spokesperson assured that the leaked data does not contain user or employee data and that it is limited to production resources and other intellectual property.

“The alleged leaked content appears related to production files only, not long-form content or employee or user data, and some of it appears to be decades old.” – Nickelodeon.

Analyzing the entire data dump may take a while, but based on the company’s statement, it doesn’t appear that Nickelodeon has identified signs of a real compromise.
