5 Million Kids, Parents' Info Hacked in VTech Products

Kid’s technology maker VTech says the personal information of about 5 million of its customers and their children may have been stolen by hackers.

The Hong Kong-based company disclosed the breach of a customer database late last week, but didn’t say how many people could be affected until Monday.

The affected database includes the names, birthdates and genders of child users.

It also includes adult user information including names, email addresses, passwords, secret questions and answers for password retrieval, IP addresses, mailing addresses and download histories.

The database doesn’t contain any credit card numbers.

The company says it’s contacted all of the affected users by email and has temporarily suspended some of its websites as a precaution.

VTech makes a variety of popular tech-related toys including tablets and smartwatches.
