The intruder who says he broke into servers at toymaker VTech last month told Motherboard that the data he* could get at was so sensitive, it made him queasy.
Really? What was in there?
According to the company’s breach notification, the intruder got at general user profile information including names, email addresses, encrypted passwords, secret questions and answers for password retrieval, IP addresses, mailing addresses and download histories – personal data pertaining to both customers and their kids.
As Motherboard reported, the tally included names, email addresses, passwords, and home addresses of 4,833,678 parents, and the first names, genders and birthdays of more than 200,000 children.
But wait, it gets worse.
