Dell has announced that on November 9 they detected in intrusion into its systems. Customers’ names, email addresses and passwords were involved in the breach. However, Dell did not find any evidence that any of this information was actually extracted. To be safe, all customers were forced to reset their passwords.
If you have had financial information stored in your Dell account, keep an eye on your credit card statements. There is no evidence any of this information was affected, but its not unusual for a company to initially report everything is okay, there is nothing to see and then a month later (after the executives have sold their shares) reveal all your personal data has been stolen . Yes Equifax, I am talking about you.
