Epsilon Data Breach Exposes Millions of Consumers' Data

By

A data breach of email marketer Epsilon has exposed the names and email addresses of millions of U.S. consumers, leading to fears that hackers may fraudulently obtain banking credentials and passwords.

Barclaycard US, Capital One and other large banks use Epsilon's services to communicate with customers via email. Now these banks are warning that the hackers may email customers in an attempt to gain access to their credit card and bank accounts.

The attack only gained access to names and email addresses, and it is believed that no financial information was accessed immediately by the hackers.

It is not known who is behind the April 1 attack, but US law enforcement agencies have begun investigating.

Several companies have sent out notices to their customers that they may begin receiving spam emails as a result of the breach. This includes customers of Best Buy, JPMorgan, Citigroup, TiVo, and Disney Destinations, the travel subsidiary of Walt Disney.

Consumers are advised to take care in replying to any official-seeming email requesting financial or account details, and to call the company's customer service line if they suspect they've received a scam email.
