    Slack, a popular start-up focused on collaboration in the workplace, said on Friday that a database storing user profile information was compromised in February. The incident lasted four days, but the company said that only a small number of users were impacted.

    The database housed registration details, such as usernames, email addresses and passwords. In addition, the information could have included other personal details, such as Skype ID and phone numbers.

    Slack says that there is no evidence that the attackers managed to decrypt stored passwords, which were salted and hashed with bcrypt, and that no financial information was accessed or compromised during this attack.
