Developer Behind Foxit PDF Reader Hit by Data Breach

From PC Mag: PDF reader developer Foxit Software has suffered a data breach that exposed email addresses, phone numbers, and passwords associated with user accounts.

"Foxit has determined that unauthorized access to its data systems took place recently. Third parties have gained access to Foxit's 'My Account' user account data," the company said in a posting on Friday. Other data that may have been stolen includes users' names, company names, and IP addresses.

Foxit Software hasn't said how many users were ensnared in the breach. But the company claims to have 325 million users and 100,000 paying customers for products like PhantomPDF.

Users would've created accounts through Foxit for access to software trial downloads, to purchase a product, and to receive troubleshooting/support information. Fortunately, no payment card data was looted in the breach, the company said.
