BBC News:

The hard-disk maker said the FBI had alerted it to “indications” of a hacker having used malware to copy details entered into its online store.

It added that the suspected breach was thought to have lasted from 27 March 2013 to 10 March this year.

This isn’t the first time a vulnerability has been exploited in Adobe ColdFusion, as The Guardian explains in a piece from just last month:

A prolific hacker gang that has breached numerous companies by exploiting Adobe software has claimed another major hit in the form of car manufacturer Citroën, the Guardian has learned.

Citroën had one of its German websites hacked to include a backdoor, which is a method of bypassing normal authentication systems, and which may have allowed the attackers to make off with whatever data was sitting on site’s server.
