As reported last week, over 69 million users of the site Neopets, a popular virtual pet website, may have had their data compromised in the first known US mega breach of the year.
The company took to Twitter to confirm the news. Neopets is owned by Viacom.
The Tweet said: “Neopets recently became aware that customer data may have been stolen. We immediately launched an investigation assisted by a leading forensics firm. We are also engaging law enforcement and enhancing the protections for our systems and our user data.
