Background on the Ubiquiti Securities Class Litigation
Ubiquiti, headquartered in New York, New York, manufactures and sells wireless data communication and wired products for enterprises and homes.
The action alleges that, throughout the Class Period, defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) the Company minimized the severity of its data breach in January 2021; (2) hackers had obtained full access to Ubiquiti’s servers and also obtained access to, among other things, all databases, user database credentials, and secrets required to forge single sign-on (SSO) cookies; (3) as a result of the data breach, attackers could remotely access Ubiquiti’s customers’ devices; and (4) as a result of the foregoing, defendants’ positive statements about the Company’s business, operations, and prospects were materially misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis.
On March 30, 2021, following the close of the market, cybersecurity news website Krebs on Security (“Krebs”) reported that Ubiquiti had understated the scale of its data breach, which began in December 2020, and that the Company’s statement on the breach “downplayed and [was] purposefully written to imply that a 3rd party cloud vendor was at risk and that Ubiquiti was merely a casualty of that, instead of the target of the attack.” According to the Krebs report, a Ubiquiti security professional noted that the Company had been aware for months that attackers had “administrative access to all Ubiquiti AWS accounts, including . . . all user database credentials, and secrets required to forge single sign-on (SSO) cookies.” On this news, the Company’s stock price fell $50.70, or 14.5%, from its closing price of $349.00 on March 30, 2021, to close at $298.30 per share on March 31, 2021, on unusually heavy trading volume.
On April 4, 2021, Krebs published another article, highlighting that Ubiquiti continued to “confirm and reinforce th[e] claims” from the March 30, 2021 article.
