Important Security Information from News Group Newspapers

Post by happychick on 01.08.11 19:28

Has anyone else received an email like this? I have only ever posted comments about the McCanns on the Sun newspaper online.

Dear Reader,

I am writing to you on behalf of News Group Newspapers (NGN) – publisher of The Sun and former publisher of the News of the World.

As you may be aware on July 19th The Sun website was subject to an organised criminal attack. It has now come to our attention that some customer information from competitions and polls was breached as part of this attack. Details vary, but could include name, address, date of birth, email and phone numbers. No financial or password information was compromised.

We are contacting you because we believe that information that you submitted to us could have been accessed, and may be published online by the group responsible. We are working closely with the Police and the Information Commissioner's Office to ensure that all steps are taken to retrieve the files involved.

We regret that we've not been able to stop this incident from happening. We'll update you directly if there are further developments related to your specific data. We would advise as a precaution to take extra care when dealing with contact from third parties if they are unknown to you.

In the meantime if you have any questions or require any further information, please contact us at custserv@thesun.co.uk or on 0207 8601129.

Regards,
Chris Duncan
Director of Customer Management

E-MAIL FROM THE SUN?

Post by Guest on 01.08.11 19:37

I'm wondering if this is a hoax. I googled the name Chris Duncan and there are loads of course but the prominent one is a person who is an expert on the sun - the one in the sky that is!

This is the email he used thesun@emails.thesun.co.uk

This would be where they got the password from if they hacked in from the Suns server. Nobody really knows the level to which they hacked into yet though Lucsec claimed they had got lots of emails. Though it does like a hoax to me if Chris Duncan is an expert on the sun in the sky! Well found Marian!

btw I like your avatar happychick!. very cool! made me laugh big grin
