PDF Reader Biz (Foxit) Breached

From the Infosecurity Magazine:

Foxit has detected that unauthorized access to some of its data systems has taken place, including access to its ‘My Account’ user account data. This means that data you have entered on our website when signing up for our services has likely been accessed by hackers,

Compromised information could include user names, email addresses, their company names, phone numbers, passwords and IP addresses.

This is just another reason we at All-About-PDF do not require our users to create accounts just to use our software. We simply do not wish to be responsible for holding your personal information if we cannot guarantee that we can keep it secure.
