tsj5j writes "On the evening of 9/17/2007, LayeredTech's support system was infiltrated. Upon closer inspection, LayeredTech determined that up to 5000 to 6000 clients could potentially be affected. Till date, LayeredTech has still not publicly confirmed the amount of data retrieved by the hackers. In fact, they have been very publicly unclear about the amount of damage done. LayeredTech is now cautioning all of it's clients to change passwords. Potential data compromised includes : Root/WHM/etc. passwords, Credit Card information, Helpdesk passwords, and any other private information exchanged via the support system. Personally identifiable information as well as email addresses may have been compromised as well. This may cause a blow to LayeredTech's reputation, who has always been a major player in the Dedicated Hosting industry.
