Livestream alerts customers to possible hack

That'll be 10,000 password resets then

Broadcasting service Livestream has admitted it may have been hacked, informing customers that an "unauthorized person may have accessed our customer account database."

Livestream is a video live streaming service that allows customers to broadcast content via the internet. It boasts of having more than 10,000 active customers.

In an email to customers, it said: "While we are still investigating the full scope of the incident, it is possible that some of your account information may have been accessed.

"This may include name, email address, an encrypted version of your password, and if you provided it to us, date of birth and/or phone number."

The company said it does not store credit card or other payment information. "We have no indication that the encrypted passwords have been decoded, but in an abundance of caution, we are requiring all users to reset their passwords," it said.

The Register has contacted Livestream for further details. ®
