Epsilon Security Breach

Since my last post on the Epsilon Security Breach, the impact of the Epsilon security breach has gotten bigger. In fact, in an article posted on Yahoo news, a Reuters news writer stated:

In what could be one of the biggest such breaches in U.S. history, a diverse swath of companies that did business with Epsilon stepped forward over the weekend to warn customers some of their electronic information could have been exposed.

So the breach has grown since it was first announced last week. I wonder if this will get bigger  since the same article goes on to say:

“While we are cooperating with authorities and doing a thorough investigation, we cannot say anything else,” said Epsilon spokeswoman Jessica Simon. “We can’t confirm any impacted or non-impacted clients, or provide a list (of companies) at this point in time.”

The problem for Epsilon seems to keep growing. As developers, we need to remember this because the last thing any of us want is to the be developer responsible for letting the hackers in.
