LaCie Customer Credit Card Information Exposed

Send Article to a Friend

Hardware maker LaCie, best known for its Mac-centric hard drives and accessories, has acknowledged that a security breach in its online store exposed customer credit card numbers and contact information for much of the past year. Seagate, which now owns LaCie, denied any problems until 14 April 2014, when it confirmed to security journalist Brian Krebs that an attacker had gained access to “name, address, email address, payment card number and card expiration date for transactions made between March 27, 2013 and March 10, 2014.” If you ordered from LaCie during that time, watch for spurious charges on your credit card bill.favicon follow link

LaCie doesn't wear pants? It's "breach." :)

Well, they were certainly caught with their pants down. :-)
Seagate are still in there, denying buttocks (in the archaic sense of the word breech). "denied any breech until 14 April" ~= s/breech/breach/g

Fixed, thanks. All sorts of context-appropriate punishments suggest themselves, but we'll stick with our standard wet noodle flogging.
