DraftKings: “no evidence of system breach” following reported hack

The company believes the loss of funds was a result of compromised customer login details.

DraftKings has announced there has been no evidence of its systems being breached following a hack report on Monday.

Yesterday, several users noticed unusual activity on their DraftKings accounts with some claiming to have been locked out before noticing unauthorized withdrawals.

The company’s shares dropped nearly 11% following the customer allegations.

DraftKings’ co-founder and president for global technology and product Paul Liberman said: “We currently believe that the login information of these customers was compromised on other websites and then used to access their DraftKings accounts where they used the same login information”.

The sports betting giant is said to have identified a loss of less than $300,000 worth of customer funds as a result of the unusual activity but still stated that there have been no traces of any type of hack.

“We have seen no evidence that DraftKings’ systems were breached to obtain this information”, Liberman said.

DraftKings has “strongly advised” all customers to create unique passwords to avoid any repeat scam-like activity and in the meantime “intend to make whole any customer that was impacted”.
