On July 8th, Teespring detected that the names and email addresses of some of its users had been acquired without authorization from our cloud infrastructure environment. The incident affected a number of other companies at the same time. Teespring had previously evaluated a 3rd party service called Waydev which required access to some of our data. This access was implemented via a technology called OAuth.
Unfortunately, Waydev retained the OAuth token for Teespring (and several other companies) which was accessed from Waydev without authorization by a third party. The token was then used to gain access to some of the Teespring infrastructure.
