CORRECTED: When was Epsilon breached?

Curiouser and curiouser.

TripAdvisor.com reported a breach on March 24.  At the time, some sources suggested it was a SQL injection, although I mentioned that there was some possibility it was due to a breach at an email service provider.  Now TripAdvisor.com has sent out notices that they have been affected by the Epsilon breach. CORRECTION: The breach report I had been sent supposedly related to Epsilon was the March 24th notice which is not Epsilon. My apologies to Epsilon and TripAdvisor.

Rest deleted as now irrelevant.

    Sigh. As far as I know, Epsilon are not the ESP for TripAdviser. That was ExactTarget, another ESP. You haven’t yet posted the data related to TripAdviser on your list at http://www.databreaches.net/?p=17374 – if you have something to prove me wrong, I’d like to see it.

      Damn. I had linked TripAdvisor to ExactTarget in an earlier blog entry, but someone told me they got a TripAdvisor notice related to Epsilon. They forwarded it to me but I didn’t read it carefully enough. They forwarded me the March 24th notification which doesn’t name Epsilon. Gah. Let me correct what needs to be corrected. Thanks for calling it to my attention.
