I have never really liked Afflika but that has nothing to do with this matter.

I am just curious to know who and how they have hacked them?

I know that their registerform is so easy to fill and register at, that even my dog cud do an Afflika aff account - joke but feels like it! The log-in looks very simple, almost to simple to be secure enugh for to send/recive data in a secure way. Maiby a simple Brutalforce and since it had happend on their own backend - afflika.c o m / whitelabels - perhaps the hacker has worked for them in the past and ether hacked or used hes old log-in info?

I am quite shore we will never know, Afflika is quiet as a mouse but what you fellow affs thinks has happend?

I know from one program which asked Affilka, that they did not confirmed anything like a hack yet.
Maybe it was too early and Affilka has to rollup the whole thing first. Interesting if they give any compensation to the programs / affiliates... As you can see in the blockchain there are thousands of € stolen - alone with one BTC Adress..

Even if you use highly complex passwords, they have still managed to hack the account all the same.

As far as I can see none of my accounts have had earnings withdrawn so not sure how far my report would go, but I'd ask that anyone that has been hacked reports it to XX, so they are at least aware of the hack.
I want to do this but it seems extremely complicated. I get confused just visiting that link. Talked to at least one program and they take zero responsibility those dumb clowns. They claim that because 2FA wasn't activated it's basically not their problem.

Nightrush and AffiliateRush refuse to take any responsibility whatsoever. They allowed the hacker to add a new payment method without my authorization, they take no responsibility for Afflika being hacked and puts the blame on the affiliate for not having activated 2FA, which is just bs. Why didn't they make 2FA activation a requirement if Afflika is so shit. How do we know the platform won't be hacked even with 2FA activated. I am pretty sure they would have put the blame on the affiliate either way. These scumbags want to take the easy way out and it pisses me off. I don't care about the money, I care about how these clowns handle situations like this and how much I can trust the program to do the right thing.

I am not working with such unprofessional programs or affiliate managers again. They are blacklisted. What a bunch of absolute clowns.

Yes thats really bad. Also had a program where a payment method without confirmation could be added.
In the past almost on every Affilka program you had to confirm a new added payment method...

And I agree: Of course 2FA is a very secure way to protect your login. But so far its an option - not mandatory. I am really looking forward that Affilka and/or the programs will compensate the losts.

Just received a message also from Bambet as they are 'encouraging' everyone to set up 2FA. Probably would just have to rip the band-aid off and go through all Affilka accounts since it seems like a large-scale issue. And now that the news are spreading about a vulnerable platform, there are going to be more attempts to hack it...

I heard there are affiliates who lost huge sums, up to 30k if not more. This is a major, major hack. I heard some other unsettling things about it too.

The programs who try to put the blame on the affiliates for not having enabled 2FA, that's just bs. I don't accept that excuse. They are 100% responsible too. We choose to trust them. 2FA is just an option, not a requirement. Also, how in the hell can they allow someone to just add a crypto payment method without authorization and then just automatically approve the payments. It's stupid.

I don't trust we are safe even with 2FA and I am willing to bet the hacking vulnerability is still there.

Either way everyone using SoftSwiss / Affilka should check accounts for payments made, look at the payment method, record it if it is not yours. Change your password asap. Probably not a bad idea to change passwords outside of other programs if you've used similar passwords or haven't changed in over a year.

2FA is a nice feature to have but many affiliate managers I know will contact affiliates if payment method is changed when it never changes.

I can tell you 100% that a strong password is not enough. They have hacked it either way.

Come on guys, we all know that there is no hacking here. Someone in Afflika with admin account and access to view all accounts passwords logged in and withdrawal the money to his bitcoin wallet.

Afflika is not a victim of hackers but responsible for a major lack of protection.

This is exactly what I suspect too. These are criminal scumbags hiding in coconut island.

Not the 1'st time a program's been hacked and payment details changed. Though, not on such a grand scale for multiple affiliate programs, sharing the same software.

Could it be an inside-job? Maybe!

We're working in an industry where some owners of casinos/programs have a severe lack of ethics and morals. These upstanding people :rolleyes:, only care about where their next buck is coming from, and how they can cheat players/affiliates, to be even greedier.

I know loads have been hacked. Doesn't seem to matter if you have a safe password. Unless Afflika is completely shite, only 2FA will protect you.
2FA should be a method of protection wherever there is an issue of money or personal data.

Then it should be mandatory, especially since these programs have shit safety policies for their wallets.
