SEATTLE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Attorney Advertising. Keller Rohrback L.L.P. is investigating recent reports that a cyber-attack on the digital toymaker VTech Holdings Ltd. (HKSE:0303) exposed the data of 6.4 million children. This could potentially be the largest ever attack targeting children.
VTech Holding Ltd., a Hong Kong company specializing in digital learning toys and cordless phones, announced that an “unauthorized party accessed VTech customer data housed on our Learning Lodge app store database on November 14, 2015.” The customer database accessed contained general user profile information including names, email addresses, birthdays, encrypted passwords, secret questions and answers for password retrieval, IP addresses, mailing addresses, and download history.
Hackers were also able to access tens of thousands of pictures of parents and children as well as chat logs between children and parents. The server also contained audio files that appear to be recordings of children’s voices. The photos, chat logs, and audio recordings are all tied to specific usernames, allowing identification of the images with the personal data provided to VTech. VTech has yet to respond about why they store the photos and chat logs on their servers.
“Consumers have a right to trust that their highly confidential and personal information, and particularly the personal information of their children, is secure,” said attorney Cari Laufenberg, a member of Keller Rohrback’s nationally recognized complex litigation group.
Approximately 6.4 million children and 4.9 million adults were affected by this data breach. If you are concerned that your or your child’s personal information was breached and would like to know more about your rights, please contact attorneys Cari Laufenberg, Gretchen Cappio, or Amy Hanson at (800) 776-6044 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
