Betfair fails to inform customers about cyber attack

Betfair admitted Friday that it did not tell customers about a cyber attack 18 months ago in which the security details for millions of people were stolen, according to Britain's The Independent:

“A Betfair spokesman said it decided not to disclose the attack, which it reported to the UK's Serious Organised Crime Agency, as it determined it was not going to impact customers…

“Nick Pickles, director of civil liberties and privacy campaign group Big Brother Watch, said: “This is nothing short of a scandal. For the personal details of millions of customers to be lost is one thing – but to then fail to inform those affected is outrageous.”
