Guidance Software Hacked

Now this is crazy - Guidance is supposed to be a respected software vendor in the security business!

Online attackers breached the security of a server at digital forensics firm Guidance Software and stole the account information of nearly 4,000 customers, the company acknowledged on Monday according to news reports. The breach, which took place in November, resulted in the loss of customer names, credit-card numbers and the three-digit card verification values (CVVs), which merchants are not supposed to retain, according to reports. The company discovered the theft on December 7 and notified customers by mail. A company spokesperson was not immediately available for comment.
