Nuffnang Philippines to launch own ATM in 2013

Nuffnang Philippines, a leading online advertiser in the country, posted a photo today in its Facebook page the image of what looks like their own ATM.

The Nuffnang ATM is obviously backed by Security Bank as shown in the picture.

Just a few months ago, the company has been very vocal on its plans of changing the traditional payout option for their blogger partners. They’ve mentioned of creating an ATm where bloggers can easily withdraw funds. Nuffnang is also thinking of lowering the minimum cashout amount to at least Php500. This is definitely a good news for most bloggers out there as they won’t have to wait to reach Php2,000, the current cashout treshold, to withdrew their money.

Nuffnang has yet to release any official statement regarding this news other than the posted status in Facebook. Per Nuffnang Philippines post, this breakthrough will be launched in 2013. Here’s how they introduce this news on their Facebook page:

“Good news, Nuffnagers! Because we desire to serve you better by giving you more efficient cash outs… We introduce to you The Nuffnang ATM!” 

With this new Nuffnang ATM being rolled out in 2013, looks like we, Nuffnangers, will be looking forward for a great new year!

Nuffnang Philippines confirms compromised database

Nuffnang may be the most successful local online advertiser in the country specifically focused on blogs. But like any other online brands that maintain database of users, they are not susceptible to hackers as well.

It was first week in August when registered Nuffnangers, a name coined to Nuffnang advertisers, are said to received job offers from a certain platehead email domain. A week after, another job offer was sent under hack.ph. Both offers seemed to be too good to be true.

To date, there are no confirmations yet if the two job offers were indeed related with Nuffnang Philippines though most of the bloggers who received the email messages believed that these spam emails came from Nuffnang’s database.

Today, Nuffnang Philippines released an official statement confirming that their database has been compromised. This confirmation though did not specifically mention the two names that were first associated to the spam incidents. Below are parts of Abe Olandres’s, Nuffnang Philippines’ Country Manager, letter to their advertisers:

“It has come to our attention that our database has been compromised and some information about your account has been illegally retrieved.”

“Our servers are centralized in Malaysia, including our R&D which is also based there. We have requested them to thoroughly investigate this incident, and after doing a security sweep, have made additional necessary precautions to prevent this from happening in the future.”

“The copied information included names, emails, and URLs. This is the reason why some of you might have received spam email in the recent week. While the spam emails did not originate from our servers, we detected that at least one (1) email was sent out to that list.”

The letter assured Nuffnang bloggers that they are doing their best to strengthen their security system and advised subscribers to change their Nuffnang account passwords.
