The week of May 15, DocuSign detected an increase in phishing emails sent to some customers and users. The emails "spoofed" the DocuSign brand in an attempt to trick recipients into opening an attached Word document that, when opened, installs malicious software.

A complete forensic analysis confirmed that only a list of email addresses was accessed—no names, physical addresses, passwords, social security numbers, credit card data or other information. No content or customer documents sent through DocuSign's e-signature system was accessed. DocuSign's core e-signature service, envelopes and customer documents and data remain secure.

As DocuSign continues to assess the depth of the breach, visit the DocuSign Trust Center for more information and updates.
