Casio Discloses Data Breach Impacting Customers in 149 Countries
Japanese electronics manufacturer Casio has suffered a data breach affecting customers from 149 countries. Hackers gained access to the servers of Casio's ClassPad education platform, compromising customer names, email addresses, countries of residence, service usage details, and purchase information. However, credit card information was not stored in the compromised database. Casio believes the breach occurred due to network security settings being disabled and insufficient operational management. The company is working with law enforcement and cybersecurity experts to investigate the incident and develop countermeasures. This comes after claims in August of a previous data leak from Casio's older databases. The ClassPad.net app is still operational, but the compromised database is currently inaccessible to external entities.
