50 Million Records Breached
In 2013, LivingSocial, the daily deals site, told its employees that it had been breached, and said that data for 50 million users might have been compromised.
In a memo to employees, the company, based in Washington, said online criminals had gained access to user names, e-mail addresses and dates of birth for some users and encrypted passwords for 50 million people. The company’s databases that store user and merchant credit card and banking information were not compromised in the attack, it said.
