The software manufacturer Ashampoo also made a disclosure to all it’s customers regarding a data theft.
In this case the information revealed is only primary contact information, no billing information as the company states it does not store credit cards or other billing information.
That is good news and they are to be commended for that.
They do think that attempts at phishing using the stolen data have been made and that a distribution of malware was also attempted.
Although confirmation was raised on the 20/Apr/2011, immediately after PSN went down, the attack took place sometime before this. Ashampoo state that they are working with German law enforcement to trace the attack but think this unlikely as the attack was distributed and sourced from a non-German location. This work with law enforcement delayed the announcement.
