Internet provider ACCA confirms leakage of data on 339,000 customers
High-speed Internet access provider ACCA Networks Co. said Thursday it has confirmed a leakage of information on 339,177 customers of the company.
The leaked data include names, addresses, telephone numbers and e-mail addresses, ACCA said. The number includes 201 ACCA customers whose data leakage was confirmed in March, it added.
At a news conference held the same day, ACCA President Yoshio Sakata apologized for the leakage, saying, "We caused customers so much trouble. We'd like to regain their confidence by striving to prevent a recurrence."
In March, Sakata suggested the possibility that data on all of ACCA's 1.1 million customers as well as about 300,000 people who once were subscribers to the company's services may have leaked to a third party.
ACCA said police later brought to the company data on the 339,177 customers they had obtained and asked whether the information had leaked from ACCA. The company checked its database and confirmed that all of the data belonged to it.
The company declined to reveal how the information leaked and when the police contacted the firm, citing ongoing police investigations.
ACCA is investigating whether the customers have experienced problems such as receiving junk e-mail or threats. It plans to apologize to customers by e-mail and telephone, the company said.
Established in March 2000, ACCA offers asymmetric digital subscriber line services to Internet access services run by several companies, including NTT Communications Corp.'s OCN, NEC Corp.'s BIGLOBE, KDDI Corp.'s DION and Sony Corp.'s So-net.
