Internet Service Provider Fasthosts has sent customers an e-mail asking them to reset their passwords following an investigation into a major security breach affecting their customer database.
"We are writing to inform you that we have recently discovered evidence of a network intrusion involving a Fasthosts server. We have reason to believe that the intruder has gained access to our internal systems, and that this may have in turn given them access to your username and some service passwords."Fasthosts e-mail to customers
The firm is asking customers to reset all password to their control panel and hosting services. They have not specifically mentioned broadband services in the e-mail we've seen, but users would certainly be advised to change any passwords in any case.
