Hackers apparently amused themselves by hacking into data security firm Staminus’ database and dumped the information, including customer information and credit card numbers online. Staminus is quick to note that it does not collect tax ID numbers or Social Security numbers of its customers.
The hackers intruded into the company’s server, seized control of its routers and reset the routers to factory settings, which brought the whole system down. This is a very scary proposition for any company.
Staminus is working with law enforcement on the intrusion. Staminus is recommending that its customers closely watch their credit card statements and report any unauthorized charges, as well as reset their Staminus account passwords. That is, when the company account is operational again.
