Hackers Hit Honda, Steal Millions of Customers' Data
Published Dec 28, 2010
Just the Facts:
* American Honda says thieves have hacked 2.2 million customers'
* Names, e-mail addresses and VINs are among the data, but no
* A second list of 2.7 million Acura owners was also stolen but
included e-mail addresses only.
TORRANCE, California . It sounds bad, but perhaps it's not as bad as it
could have been: American Honda has notified 2.2 million customers that a
list including e-mail addresses, VINs and login information has been
stolen by unknown hackers. Company officials say the list didn't include
Social Security numbers, birthdates, bank information or other data that
would leave people vulnerable to identity theft.
The Columbus, Ohio, Dispatch reported that the list belonged to an outside
vendor who was using it to send "welcome" e-mail messages to customers
with OwnerLink or MyAcura accounts. Reportedly, 2.7 million Acura owners
were on a separate list that was also stolen, but that one had only e-mail
addresses on it.
