“The hacked server’s database included information on 7,520 of TAIS’s customers, but did not contain such personal data as financial information or credit card and Social Security numbers,” the company said in a release. “To date, TAIS’s investigation has confirmed data theft of email addresses and passwords affecting 681 customers.”
The intrusion was discovered July 11, The Register said, and the company quickly notified its customers.
“Toshiba and its group companies regard data security as a priority concern and will continue a thorough investigation of the incident,” the company said. “Toshiba will take all necessary precautions to avoid any recurrence of similar incidents and to ensure customer information remain secure.”
