Hacked Toy Maker Warned Users of Insecurity

It’s been more than 2 months after the hackers breached the website and stole the personal details of almost 5 million customers of VTech, an online-connected toy maker. At the moment, VTech is still under investigation for the November breach. Now the company has finally relaunched its online app store, which introduced much-needed upgrades to the site’s security in order to try and quell the concerns of customers.

The problem is that the new app store comes with another surprise for parents in the website’s terms of service. If you study a section headlined Limitation of Liability, you will find the following warning: “You acknowledge and agree that any information you send or receive during your use of the site may not be secure and may be intercepted or later acquired by unauthorized parties.” This means that in case the company gets hacked again, you will have no grounds for complaint, because you have been warned that it’s not secure, and you nevertheless agreed to provide your details.

When the new clause was first discovered, the industry experts admitted they had no idea when the language was added. However, the document says it was updated on 24 December 2015, which is almost a month after the breach was confirmed, and a month before the website came back online. So far, it cannot be told for sure whether the terms and conditions have any legal force, wherever in the world the toymaker customers are based. For instance, in Europe, customers are protected against unfair terms of service. Although this fact doesn’t stop companies trying to enforce their terms, it still means that if the customers go to court, VTech’s terms of service may be deemed invalid and the customers win anyway.

Embolism avatarwhen the DOJ,CIA,Homeland security and anyone else can be hacked by whatever exploit or workaround they choose None can promise with certainty that they are invulnerable to attack and so a disclaimer which does not hide the possibility or seek to mislead their customers from the outset is saying use at your own risk and if people want to use their app store or other products it is let the buyer beware and so their liability is absolved,if peoples data is seized by law enforcement or any other party they are also not liable for the data and any company that promises anything different today is being dishonest.
