Microsoft India backtracks, now says hack may have exposed credit card details
Microsoft has performed an about-turn in India and revealed that a recent hack of its online store may have compromised credit card details belonging to customers in the country.
When the Microsoft India Store was hacked earlier this month, the company emailed its customers to assure them that “databases storing credit card details and payment information were not affected during this compromise”. However, it now appears that this is incorrect.
As Wall Street Journal columnist Amit Agarwal writes on his own blog, a new update from Microsoft, which was sent to its customers today, has rather different news:
Further detailed investigation and review of data provided by the website operator revealed that financial information may have been exposed for some Microsoft Store India customers.
