Monster.com admits data breach

Jobs site Monster.com has warned its customers that hackers have stolen personal data from its database.

The firm admitted that intruders have made off with an as-yet unspecified quantity of consumer information, including names, phone numbers, email addresses, user IDs and passwords.

Sensitive data, such as social security numbers or financial information, has not been compromised since Monster.com does not generally collect such information.

The job- seekers’ site, used by those looking for IT marketing jobs, told customers that they may have to change log-in data and reminded them to regularly alter passwords as an extra precaution.

Following the discovery of the breach, global chief privacy officer Patrick Manzo said: "Monster initiated an investigation and took corrective steps.

"It is important to know the company continually monitors for any illicit use of information in our database, and so far, we have not detected the misuse of this information."

Last week, online security specialists Websense warned of criminals targeting high-profile websites to capture personal data.
