According to Lifehacker, LivingSocial, a daily deals site, was hacked. The hackers exposed over 50 million people’s usernames, passwords, email addresses, names, and birthdates in the Washington, D.C. based company.
The tech site All Things D uncovered LivingSocial’s breach when they received an internal memo from Living Social. Fortunately, although the hackers did acquire a lot of personal customer information, they were unable to obtain any credit card information. Customers should be receiving an email explaining the situation, but as a precaution, all customers are advised to change their passwords. If the uncovered password is one you use for other websites and to access personal information, be sure to change those passwords as well.
