Dow Jones hacked for 3 years, 3500 of 1%ers data taken

“It appears that the focus was to obtain contact information such as names, addresses, email addresses and phone numbers of current and former subscribers in order to send fraudulent solicitations.”[…]“As part of the investigation to date, we also determined that payment card and contact information for fewer than 3,500 individuals could have been accessed, although we have discovered no direct evidence that information was stolen,” the letter says. Those individuals are being contacted directly by Dow.

And if you believe that these details weren’t taken while they were in plain view (as well as their encrypted passwords) you’ll believe anything. I have a great deal on used camels for you.
