Name.com Tells Customers To Change Password Due To Breach
Michael Berkens writes:
Name.com sent an email to customers today regarding a potential security breach. The compromised data was said to potentially include usernames, email addresses, encrypted passwords, and encrypted credit card data.
The official notice read:
Name.com recently discovered a security breach where customer account information including usernames, email addresses, and encrypted passwords and encrypted credit card account information may have been accessed by unauthorized individuals. It appears that the security breach was motivated by an attempt to gain information on a single, large commercial account at Name.com.
Name.com stores your credit card information using strong encryption and the private keys required to access that information are stored physically in a separate remote location that was not compromised.
