It is being reported that UK webhoster and discount domain pioneer Easily has emailed customers informing them that it has fallen victim to a malware attack. The company has not revealed how many customers were affected by the attack but assures people that credit card details have not been compromised.

COO Edwina McDowall says that a forensic investigation by an external team uncovered the malware. McDowall says that the assailant is, as yet, unknown but steps have been taken to eliminate the malware.

Writing to customers whose accounts were not directly affected by the attack she said:

The investigation revealed that a list of domain names registered on behalf of our customers was accessed. However, none of the domain names that are registered to you were featured on the list that was accessed. We have found no evidence that your account details, passwords or any personal information which could identify you was accessed. However, as a precautionary measure, we recommend that you change the password which you use to log into easily.co.uk.

At this time there is no word on which specific domains were targeted or why. Clients of Easily can share their experiences by writing a review.
