Data breach occurs at registrar

online shopping
Despite all the security measures online payment systems provide, the reality is Internet shoppers are never 100% safe. Last week one of the largest domain registrars in the United States reported a security breach that affects some 573,928 customers.

The incident involved a piece of malicious code running on servers associated with affiliates of the registrar- companies who sell its domains under a different business name. The breach opened on March 12 of this year and once detected, was closed on June 8.

The good in all of this is that the registrar was honest enough to report the breach and has promised to compensate victims for any fraudulent account activity or identify theft that takes place. So far none has been reported.
