LivingSocial Says It Was Hacked

WASHINGTON (April 27, 2013)—The online deals service LivingSocial says its website was hacked, and the personal data of more than 50 million customers may have been affected.

The company was advising all customers Friday evening to change their passwords and that it's contacting customers in most of the countries where it operates.

In an e-mail to customers, the company said names, email addresses and dates of birth may have been exposed by the cyberattack, but it said the database that stores customer credit-card information was not affected.

The Washington, D.C.-based company says it's working with law enforcement officials to investigate the attack.

It's the latest bad news for LivingSocial.

Last November, the company announced it was cutting 400 jobs worldwide, as the deals marked continued to face challenges.
