Security breaches are no laughing matter in the world of computers and Crucial is hoping to rest the minds of its customers concerning one. In an email sent out by Crucial, it informed customers of a security breach at Epsilon, the company Crucial uses to send out emails. In the email, Crucial stated how Epsilon informed Crucial of an unauthorized entry which obtained only names and/or email addresses. Epsilon is sure that no other information was obtained, and Crucial reminds its customers that it will never ask for sensitive information like credit card or social security numbers in any email sent out. If you do get an email from Crucial asking about that information, you know it isn't actually from Crucial and is from a scammer. Epsilon has reported the matter to the proper authorities, and Crucial wants to inform its customers of the matter and to remind them to always be safe regarding Internet use.
