TX: Gexa Energy data system hacked last spring
Fanny S. Chirinos of Caller-Times reports on a breach that occurred almost a year ago, but is first being disclosed to affected customers:
Former and current customers of Gexa Energy may have had their personal information compromised last year.
The Houston-based company on April 2 issues a letter to customers who had applied for or initiated service in spring 2008. That letter stated that on April 30, 2008, a hacker breached customer data.
There doesn’t seem to be any statement on Gexa Energy’s web site about the incident and so far, no other mainstream media sources have covered the story. Maybe someone can find out why it took Gexa almost a year to realize that they had been hacked, assuming that they first discovered it now.
