Roland Corporation Hacked


The 'Backstage' Web site for Roland U.S. was recently hacked, and customer data was exposed.

"In an email obtained by SC Magazine, users of the 'Roland Backstage' service -- which acts as a support forum and place to register products -- were told to reset passwords at minimum following the breach," writes SC Magazine's Ry Crozier. "The company -- which makes electronic musical instruments -- said in the email that it 'believe[d] that less than one percent of subscriber account information was compromised.'"

"'This information may include one or more of the following: the user name, e-mail address, password, street address, phone number, and/or personal information such as age range, gender and registered products,' the email stated," Crozier writes.
