LaCie, a major retailer and tech company from France, has confirmed that its website has experienced a security breach for over a one-year period. Informed about the security violation on March 19 by the FBI, transactions between March 27, 2013 and March 10, 2014 are thought to have been affected. Customer names, addresses, email addresses, and payment card numbers with their expiration dates are at risk, in addition to usernames and passwords. LaCie began notifying affected customers on April 11, and its digital store is currently closed while fixes to its secure payment infrastructure are under way.
