Computer hardware company LaCie is warning customers who have made transactions between March 27th, 2013 and March 10th, 2014 that their personal data may have been compromised. According to a statement released by the company, customer names, addresses, email addresses, payment card numbers, card expiration numbers and passwords could be at risk. LaCie’s disclosure of the year-long security breach came a month after Krebs on Security published evidence of the attack. Brian Krebs wrote extensively about “a botnet of hacked e-commerce sites” created using Adobe ColdFusion vulnerabilities. LaCie’s electronic store front was reportedly ensnared in the network of malware-infected sites. At the time of report, Clive Over, the director of corporate communications for Seagate (LaCie’s parent company), told Krebs on Security that the company had “conducted a preliminary investigation” and was “not aware that company or third party information was improperly accessed.”
