Hackers Stole Data of Toy Firm Customers

Vtech, a popular children’s technology and toy firm, has recently suspended trading on the Hong Kong stock exchange and informed its clients about the hack that allegedly saw 4.8 million customer details leaked, including sensitive data about kids and adults. The company admitted that a few weeks ago, an “unauthorized party” accessed its customer data housed on the company’s Learning Lodge app store database. According to Vtech representatives, the leak information included private profile details, including names, addresses, IP addresses, email addresses, download history and even secret questions and answers.

As for the password information, Vtech admitted that the intruders accessed it as well, but it was encrypted. In addition, the company assured all its clients that the leak did not contain any credit card details.

Security experts confirmed the fact of the hack after verifying a sample of the stolen data dumped online, which contained customer data including the names, genders, birth dates and addresses of children. The leak contained 4.8 million unique customer email addresses, which means that 4.8m customer records were stolen, including more than 227,000 children’s records. However, the experts found out that the passwords were not encrypted as the company claims. They explain that once the passwords hit the database, they are protected only with a straight MD5 hash, which can’t really protect weak passwords. As for the kids’ passwords, those were just plain text.

Industry observers point out that this hack was just another one in a long line of data breaches including the recent TalkTalk hacks. In a latter case, a database of millions of customers was leaked, which resulted in phishing attacks and scams. Moreover, recently the privacy of children has been taken to discussion as well, following the alleged breaches of the connected toys for kids – for example, the Wi-Fi connected Barbie doll (Hello Barbie), which turned out to be vulnerable to hack and may be exploited as a surveillance device.

Security researchers reiterate that despite the frequency of these incidents, companies are just not getting the message. They stress that taking security seriously is something the companies need to do before a data breach, rather than promise to do afterwards to placate people.

analogkid6103 avatarYeah more of the usual, info hoarders collect it. Just to mishandle it enough so it gets spread around. Im done, this is like beating the dead horse, companys,governments,no one knows how to protect the nfo. It seems like the only peeps who know how to keep nfo safe are the terrorists.
