Hackers have stolen customer data from Touchnote which makes an app that lets people turn a photo taken on a phone into a postcard. The company has sent an email to customers hit by the breach informing them that data has been stolen.
In a statement, Touchnote said names, email and home addresses were taken in the attack. It said it was still investigating the breach and, so far, was not sure how many customers had been affected. About 4 million postcards are believed to have been sent via the app since it was launched in 2008. The app is pre-installed on millions of handsets. Only identity information rather than passwords and payment card information was stolen in the attack, it said, which was first discovered on 4 November.
