The Wattpad, the online home of data security, has been hacked by the hacker who claimed to be behind the WannaCry ransomware attack.
WannaCrypt, which encrypts files on a computer, is also believed to be responsible for the WPA2 security breach that has forced many companies to change their passwords.
According to security experts, the hackers are targeting Wattpad’s servers.
The hackers were able to gain control of the servers via a “zero-day vulnerability,” which allows them to compromise the computers’ network.
It’s not yet known if the hackers gained access to Wattpad itself, or if they gained access by exploiting an existing vulnerability.
The attackers used “cyber attacks,” according to a blog post by security researcher and WannaChew creator Scott Guthrie.
“The hackers have used an extremely sophisticated zero-day exploitation technique to compromise a wide range of Wattpad systems,” Guthrie wrote.
The attack is being described as “very sophisticated” and “very dangerous,” according a statement from the company.
The hack affects the servers running the Wattpad website.
Waze, which is a popular app for the iPhone, Android, and Apple Watch, was also affected by the hack.
The app is not yet up and running.
“It’s not an attack on our customers, it’s an attack against our employees and on our products,” CEO Mark Rippke said in a statement.
Wattpad has a large online community and has a long history of offering its customers data security solutions, including WPA and WPA-TKIP. “
Wattpad is working with our cybersecurity experts and our network security team to assess the situation and make changes to our system to mitigate the impact,” Rippkis statement said.

The company has more than a million active users, according to its website.
The Wanna Cys, who call themselves the collective behind the hack, claimed responsibility for the attack, according a blogpost by security researchers and WanaChew creators Scott Guthries and Mike Shull.
The group also claimed responsibility in a post to Twitter.
The security firm Symantec said it has discovered that the hack was conducted by the group “the collective behind Wanna Cry,” and that the group has been in contact with law enforcement.
“Symantec has been notified by the FBI that a Wanna cys hack has been conducted by a group called the collective ‘the collective of the cys,’ which is responsible for Wanna/Cry ransomware,” Symantech said in an email.
“In addition, the group also stated that the company has been receiving messages from other Wanna cybers to target other companies and organizations.”
The group said it had “multiple attempts” to infiltrate Wanna.
Winaero, which provides security services to companies and government agencies, said it was working with law enforcers to address the hack and that it is “actively reviewing and working with Wanna to secure its systems.”
The company said it is working to secure the WattPad network and is working closely with law-enforcement.
“Our network security teams are actively investigating the WaaS attack that has impacted the WattPads infrastructure and are monitoring all threats to our network,” Wanna spokeswoman Katie Smith said in the statement.
Waaast, a security company that provides services for startups, said the hack impacted its systems, which are located in New York and Texas.
“As soon as we learned about this incident, we immediately suspended all Waaasm service to customers,” Waaasta CEO Jason Bowerman said in statement.
In a statement, Wanna’s cofounder, Kevin Systrom, said, “We are working with Symantect to ensure our WaaASec infrastructure is secure as Wanna attacks continue to escalate.
We are in constant communication with law authorities, and our goal is to continue to offer our customers the best data security service, and to provide all of our customers with an uninterrupted and reliable network.”
The Waaasec network is located in the UK, according the company’s website.
