Chegg is a vital study tool for many, but what happens when you no longer need a Chegg account? Fortunately, deleting a Chegg account is quite simple. But keep in mind that you don't have to delete your Chegg account entirely; you can simply cancel your Chegg subscription, which affords you the option to re-activate your subscription at any time. This wikiHow article will walk you through both options, helping you to delete your Chegg account and/or cancel a Chegg Study subscription.

In 2018, Chegg became the victim of a massive hack that affected 40 million individuals. These were a combination of employees, outsider contracts, and students. The stolen information was found for sale on the dark web. As a result, the Federal Trade Commission, or FTC, has become involved. Chegg reached an agreement with the FTC to settle the charges, which "agreed to adopt a comprehensive data security program."

The stolen information is very similar to many breaches we face daily; names, addresses, and social security numbers are often explicitly targeted by hackers, as the range of crimes that bad actors can commit with such data is broad. Adding in the disability, religion, and sexual orientation data can make the victims targets online and in reality.

At this point, many T-Mobile users are appalled. When talking about a hack on the company that has access to your most personal pictures, accounts, and conversations, people don't want to be able to say "again" casually.

2023 has definitely gone off with a bang. In the last few weeks, two of the biggest names in online business were hacked, as well as an insulin provider, respiratory therapist, and yet another of California's departments.

Credential stuffing occurs when one hack, usually a surprisingly small one, offers a hacker the ability to steal someone's login credentials for one site, profile, or account and attempts to use it to gain access to other accounts in the same person's name.

Medical institutions have been facing a heightened risk of data breaches. We've seen constant reporting of hospitals, insurance companies, and therapy offices being hacked, and there is little we can do to stop it.

Credential stuffing attacks are more common than one might think. This type of attack occurs when a hacker or other form of criminal finds personal credentials, usually log-in and account information, and uses that information to attempt to access your other accounts.

Vice Society is a Russian ransomware group that targets public and private education systems. The group was responsible for the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) hack, which affected more than 300,000 teachers and students from LA. They were also behind various hacks and breaches that left multiple colleges and universities crippled through 2021 and 2022.

We've seen a lot of hacks over the years, but a fast-food chain is not one that you immediately think of. A hacker is more likely to attack a credit bureau, hospital, or school system in search of the information they want, but if you think about it, Five Guys isn't that bad of a target.

People familiar with data security are aware of the problems associated with hospital security. It doesn't matter how extensive the hospital's systems are, how hard it is to hack, or how many precautions are in place.

We've talked the last few weeks about the holiday crime rate and how it rises above most of the rest of the year. We've talked about how hospitals and schools are prime targets for hackers because of the plethora of information they contain.

We're about two-thirds of the way through our holiday hack spree, and it doesn't seem to be slowing down. Another financial company has been added to the ever-growing list, making it difficult for anyone with an online or cyber presence to trust anything or anyone online.

We often talk about how hospitals, schools, banks, and credit bureaus are some of the most prominent targets for hackers. However, we also talk about how sometimes, the most obvious place to be hacked takes eons to get hacked.

People familiar with cybersecurity are aware of the rise in hospital hacks and breaches over the last few years. Those that try to make themselves aware of many data incidents will be astonished by the sheer number of hospitals and schools on those lists.

Now that we're reaching the end of 2022, the holidays have hit, and so has the winter hack spike. This so-called spike has yet to actually be researched, but it is a common theory that there is a massive swell in both real life and cybercrime around the winter holidays.

We're sure we all remember the Los Angeles Unified School District hack. It was all over news stations for weeks as the teachers, students, and parents dealt with the largest education data breach in history.

As we've stated in past posts, financing companies are incredibly high on the target list for hackers. Financial companies have access to tons of PII (personally identifying information), making them perfect for hackers.

Power companies are an underrated target for hackers worldwide. To sign up for power services, you need to offer the company your name, social security number (SSN), address, and other forms of ID, among other things.

Last week we talked about the calm before the storm; the massive influx of hacks and breaches that come hand in hand with the holidays hadn't yet started, and all we could report on were lawsuits (of which there were many).

Alright, everyone, it's official; we've found the eye of the hurricane. Just before the holidays begin, we find ourselves in that lull, just before the massive hacks start to spike around Black Friday.

An investigation is currently ongoing. Chegg said the hacker(s) "may have" gained access to user data such as names, email addresses, shipping addresses, usernames, and passwords.

The company said account passwords were protected by a hashing algorithm and were not stored in cleartext, albeit it did not mention which hashing algorithm. This is important as many of these algorithms can be broken and the passwords reverted to their plaintext forms.

The latest hack involved the theft of some 700 employee records and included names and Social Security numbers, according to a report in TechCrunch. How the hack took place was not shared, but Chegg said it had hired a forensic firm and informed law enforcement of the breach.

The new hacking came a day after a federal judge ruled that a lawsuit against the company for its 2018 hack be sent to arbitration. That hack, disclosed in September 2018 and dated to April the same year, involved the theft of data belonging to 40 million users. Thinkful, a company owned by Chegg, was also hacked in September 2019.

CFPB Issues Complaint Bulletin Highlighting Consumer Complaints Related to Cryptocurrency Assets. On November 10, the CFPB issued a Complaint Bulletin highlighting complaints that consumers reported related to crypto assets. According to the Bulletin, consumers most commonly reported being the victim of fraud, theft, account hacks, and scams. Consumers also reported issues with transferring assets and reported difficulties in accessing their funds due to issues with crypto platforms, identity verification, and security holds. The Complaint Bulletin advises consumers to: (1) beware of common crypto-related scams; (2) report suspicious Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation claims suggesting government endorsement or insurance protection; and (3) submit complaints to the CFPB.

Over 1,000 Boston University students were forced to change their account passwords after BU servers were flooded with spam emails from student accounts in late September, university officials said. The spam is believed to be a result of a 2018 breach of the educational site Chegg.

Eric Jacobsen, executive director of Information Security at BU, wrote in an email that student accounts that displayed spam activity were temporarily disabled and the students were forced to change their passwords as a means of resecuring their accounts.

While they cannot pinpoint exactly which accounts received spam, the Information Security team spoke with other institutions and concluded that the Chegg breach was the main source of the spam, Jacobsen wrote.

Chegg is not officially associated with BU, but it is a service many students turn to for resources such as online textbooks and answers to homework. While the hack occurred last year, the effect on BU students was only recently discovered thanks to the September spam emails.

Sandya Ganesan, a senior in the Sargent College of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences, was one of the students who had to re-secure her account. She said this process entailed seeing IT services to change her password, which Ganesan did after noticing that her Blackboard, Student Link and BU wifi were not functioning.

With Ganesan and other students who had to re-secure their accounts, emails were sent out with steps students should take to make sure their email was set up normally to rule out the potential of any malfunctioning. Ganesan said she plans to keep her information safe with these tips and other steps.
