We have detected an attack towards AdGuard servers. The most important thing is: AdGuard servers were not compromised. Malefactors used existing databases of email/password pairs previously leaked by different companies. We believe that attackers were able to access some of the accounts, but only few of them which owners used the same compromised email/password pair. If you are not one of them, your personal data was not leaked. We made a desicion to reset all users' passwords anyway, mostly as a preventive measure.
Since the very beginning of AdGuard, every year we were doing more: more updates, more products, more features. And that translated into more people using AdGuard :). However, you may have noticed that in 2018 we were not as active with AdGuard updates as we usually are. We even had to postpone the long-awaited cloud sync feature. There is a good reason for that, and I am going to tell you more about it today.
