Bet Fair Fiasco
Cybercriminals managed to attack Betfair Casino last year and stole as much as three million accounts and bank details of nearly 90,000 users. Naturally, therefore the casino received a lot of flak for failing to warn and inform their players about this grand theft. Betfair however categorically maintained that none of the stolen data could be accessed because it was highly secure. This was seen as a move to hide this attack, which would have affected its popularity. Nonetheless, according to the Director of the privacy campaign for Big Brother Watch, this was in reality nothing less than a scandal. It was preposterous for the company to keep their clients in dark about the stolen data and the person responsible ought to be penalized for having compromised the financial security of so many users. The casino claimed that it had restored and consolidated its system and has abided by all recommendations put forward by the investigating commission after this incident. They stated that they were confident that such a security lapse would never recur in the future.
