Electronics retailer LaCie is the latest company to suffer a security breach, with scores of customer records up for grabs, left exposed for one year. LaCie, which is now owned by Seagate, was informed of the breach by the FBI, which will also contribute to the investigation.

It's unknown how many customers were exposed in the breach, with limited information until the forensics analysis is completed. However, it appears the hackers were able to compromise LaCie's online store using the same Adobe ColdFusion vulnerabilities that led to breaches among other retailers.

 

"The information that may have been accessed by the unauthorized person includes name, address, email address, payment card number and card expiration date for transactions made between March 27, 2013 and March 10, 2014," according to a statement emailed to Krebs on Security. "We engaged a leading forensic investigation firm, who conducted a thorough investigation into this matter."
