Sony customers notified of security breach

Sony Electronics notified the New Hampshire Attorney General’s Office yesterday of a breach involving customer data at a third party service provider, TeleTech.

According to the notification (pdf), TeleTech notified Sony that unauthorized copies of certain customers’ credit card information had been made and e-mailed to an account outside of TeleTech’s network.

The total number of customers affected was not indicated. The breach appears to have been time-limited and affected customers who placed orders through Sony Style Telesales Department between May 23 and June 3, 2010.
