We regret to inform you that our Ontario Reptile and Amphibian
Atlas App has been hacked and personal information (name,
email and password) was posted online. We believe that the
reptile and amphibian data has not been compromised.
Our team is working hard to rectify this breach and ensure
nothing like this happens again. For starters, we are:
Encrypting all passwords in the database;
Resetting all passwords in the database;
Contacting the host of the website displaying the stolen
information demanding that the malicious website be
removed; and Alerting the Privacy Commissioner of
Canada about the breach.
If you used that same password elsewhere, as a
precaution we’d strongly advise that you change
that password immediately.
We will email you shortly when we’ve reset the passwords
with clear steps for how you can set up your new password.
We’re sorry for the inconvenience.
We will update you as we learn more and take further
steps with our developer to safeguard the atlas app.
Your privacy and security are important to us. We
are sincerely sorry.
— The Team at Ontario Nature
