On July 19, 2023, a data breach at Roblox exposed sensitive user information from attendees of the 2017-2020 Roblox Developers Conferences. The leaked list contained 4,000 unique email addresses, alongside personal details such as names, usernames, dates of birth, phone numbers, physical and IP addresses.

This information could be used for phishing attempts, spam, identity theft, and other malicious activities.

The data breach was first reported by Twitter user @RTC, who obtained a copy of the leaked list. Roblox has since confirmed the breach, but has been relatively quiet about the details. In a statement, the company said that it is "investigating the incident and is working to mitigate the impact of the breach".

We recommend Roblox users to check the situation on HaveIBeenPwned, just like RTC stated as the leaked information is particularly sensitive because it includes the names and usernames of attendees, which could be used to impersonate them in phishing attacks.

The information could also be used to track down attendees' physical addresses, which could make them targets for identity theft or other crimes.
