Toy maker VTech says breach hit 6.4 million kids’ accounts
Educational toy maker VTech has said 11.6 million accounts were compromised in a cyberattack last month, including those of 6.4 million children.
The total number of accounts affected is nearly double that reported last week by the security news site Motherboard, which interviewed a hacker who claimed credit for the breach.
Most of the account holders were in the U.S., including 2.2 million parents and 2.8 million children, VTech said Wednesday in Hong King, where the company is based. France, the U.K., Germany and Canada round out the top five countries hit, VTech said in an updated FAQ.
