r/ProtonMail - Don't believe everything you read online about ProtonMail
2018-11-18T06:07:50.7145875Z - / Hacker News
As many of you may be aware, earlier today, criminals attempted to extort ProtonMail by alleging a data breach, with zero evidence. An internal investigation turned up two messages from the criminals involved, which again repeated the allegations with zero evidence, and demanded payment. The lack of evidence strongly suggests there is no breach, and this is a simple case of online extortion. Thus, we believe that this is a hoax and failed extortion attempt, and there is zero evidence to suggest otherwise. However, we currently have zero evidence of a breach of our infrastructure.
