The site warned users four months ago that a hacker intrusion had compromised data(...). "All necessary measures to minimize the impact of the attack were initiated immediately at that time. This included notification of all affected users, resetting of passwords, taking the hacked database offline, a thorough review of the company's IT security policies, removal of a portion of the company's offerings from the internet, notification of the relevant civil authorities and a clarification of the ensuing legal questions."
