Computer hard drive maker LaCie Acknowledges Year Long Credit Card Breach. The suspected breach was thought to have lasted from 27 March 2013 to 10 March this year. The information potentially exposed includes customer names, addresses, e-mail addresses, payment card numbers and payment card expiration dates, along with user names and passwords. Philippe Spruch, chairman of the board and general manager of LaCie, wrote in the notification letter:
“We have hired a leading forensic investigation firm, who is conducting a thorough investigation, and assisting us in implementing additional security measures.”
LaCie was taken over by US tech company Seagate in 2012, but still sells goods using its name.
