The companies, however, confirmed that they did not leak credit card details as they claim to encrypt their customers' credit card numbers before storing them in their databases.

It is also worth noting that the passwords for the account connections of the affected customers have not been leaked either.

The companies took the necessary steps to stop the breach, starting an investigation immediately with the involvement of a leading independent security company in cyberspace to determine the scope of the event.

The companies have also notified all competent authorities of the data breach and have already started cooperating with federal law enforcement authorities, and are also contacting affected customers to inform them.

Good if you have one accounts change one of your Affiliates (Web.com, Network Solutions and Register.com), as well as any other account that you use to use the same login credentials.
