Big Deals Media Affected by Data Breach
Another data breach affects a Minnesota company, and has potentially affected some customers here in Mankato.
Big Deals Media sent its users an email yesterday explaining that hackers accessed its customer database records.
Radio Mankato listeners know Big Deals Media from the Big Deals Shopping Show, where customers can buy discounted deals for local businesses.
Big Deals says hackers could have gotten ahold of customer names, email addresses and account passwords, but unlike other breaches affecting companies across the country, they didn't access financial information.
The company says it's enhancing its security measures, and urges people with accounts to change their passwords.
Radio Mankato says Big Deals Media is a separate entity, and while the station has gotten a few calls from listeners, subscribers seem to be satisfied with the info provided in the Big Deals email.
