Neopets security breach
The technology news site BleepingComputer, made the claim about 69 million users being affected, and reported that a hacker had provided a screenshot purporting to show the data stolen includes names, dates of birth, email addresses, postcodes, gender, country and other site- and game-related information. The hacker offered the data for sale on Tuesday, asking for four bitcoins, equivalent to $90,500 (£75,500), it reported.
Neopets has since urged users to change their passwords and promised to provide update as the investigation continues.
