The information that has been compromised includes names, email addresses, usernames, company name, country locations, and UiPath certification details for users who signed up for the company’s online learning platform called the UiPath Academy.

UiPath, which has been named to the CNBC Disruptor 50, claims that no passwords or financial information were exposed and only data of UiPath Academy users was compromised.

On December 1, 2020, UiPath became aware of an incident that resulted in unauthorised disclosure of a file containing limited personal information about users of UiPath Academy, the company said in the email sent to users.

UiPath said it is aware of only one online source where the information was made available. UiPath will not name the source due to important security (and other related) reasons.

UiPath said users who registered on its platform before or on March 17, 2020, had their details leaked. UiPath did not divulge the details about how many users were impacted.

In July this year, UiPath announced it has raised $225 million in its Series E investment round, at a valuation of $10.2 billion.
