Large domain name registrar discloses security breach.
Web.com announced today that a security breach might have disclosed credit card information of 93,000 of its customers.
The company owns Network Solutions and Register.com. Although most domain name investors use lower-cost registrars, many have accounts with these registrars for expired domain names. The registrars don’t necessarily have your credit card information, though, as domains won at NameJet are paid through NameJet. Update: See FAQs from Web.com. Register.com and Network Solutions were not affected, and all people potentially affected have received an email by now.
Web.com will provide a year of free credit monitoring for customers that may have been affected. I assume this means they will notify customers if their information might have been revealed through the breach.
