Nikon World Customer Info Exposed

Nikon has become the latest victim in the rash of customer exposure incidents plaguing the online world. Members in our forums first reported the incident when they received a notification letter from the company indicating that as a Nikon World magazine subscriber, "personal information...has been made available to unauthorized persons." An Associated Press article states that a link in a status e-mail to potential subscribers of the magazine led to pages of customer information, including addresses, telephone numbers, credit card numbers and expiration dates of current subscribers. The site was subsequently shut down and Nikon would only indicate a "small number of subscribers were affected." No details were provided on how the breach occurred. Customers who received a notification letter from Nikon should take steps to ensure their credit has not been accessed inappropriately by contacting the three major credit reporting bureaus as soon as possible.
