AMMO TO GO’S remarkable response to data breach
Nasir Pasha, Esq. writes:
Earlier this month, AmmoToGo.com, an online ammunition retailer, sent out an e-mail to customers disclosing the theft of consumer information including e-mail addresses and passwords. The e-mail provided a link to a password reset page and offered assistance to stop possible SPAM from anyone who might have purchased the list.
It’s a remarkably pro-active response from a small business in light of the fact that no credit card numbers, firearm owner identification information or driver licenses seem to have been compromised. But it raises once more the problem of online data security and the risk that hacker attacks pose to small businesses.
You can read the rest of his comments here, but the fact that Pasha thinks this is a “remarkably pro-active response” is somewhat remarkable in and of itself, as this type of notification is expected and important because some users continue to foolishly re-use passwords across sites.
