Case manufacturer ClamCase data stolen, customer info at risk

updated 03:59 pm EDT, Wed September 3, 2014

Hackers penetrated system between April 15 and August 6, 2014

Apple iPad case seller ClamCase is the victim of a computer intrusion, revealing its customer information to hackers. Emails to customers have been arriving in recent days, claiming that the company has fallen victim to the hack, and purchase data from that period between April 15 and August 6 has been stolen. Information obtained includes customer names, addresses, and credit card information.

Any purchasers who bought goods on the site during the intrusion period is at risk for personal information theft. The malware has since been purged, and the company claims that transactions made after August 6 are safe.

A letter to the customers by ClamCase regarding the penetration says that "we are diligently working with third-party experts and appropriate law enforcement agencies to address the matter. No law enforcement investigation delayed notifying you of this matter."

The company is offering identity theft insurance, as well as help if the information stolen has already been used. The help isn't automatic -- afflicted customers need to opt in to the protective services.
