One of the world's leading providers of Internet firewall services, has been breached. Imperva announced yesterday that a 2017 database, made up of customers who use their Incapsula WAF product, was compromised.

Leaked information included:

  • Email addresses
  • Hashed and salted passwords
  • API Keys
  • Customer-provided SSL certificates

This information could potentially allow an attacker to intercept, view and/or modify traffic being directed to an an Incapsula customer's website and even reroute that traffic through a site owned by the attacker.
