Monster.com promises better vigilance

By Justin Mann on
After suffering a fairly significant data breach in which a lot of personal information was stolen, Monster.com has tried to ease the minds of their customers. They have outlined and posted plans for security improvements and better security practices, not to mention warning the 1.3 million affected users that they should watch for suspicious activity with their own information.

The information stolen didn't include credit card numbers or bank account numbers, but did provide enough so that it would be easy for someone to pose as an employee and perhaps social engineer their way getting even more information.

Now the big question is whether or not anyone will be seriously affected by this data breach, and whether or not Monster.com will be held responsible.
