Ashampoo informs 14 million customers.

German software developer Ashampoo has informed its 14 million customers that hackers gained access to its customer database in an embarrassing security breach.

The breach stings particularly for Ashampoo because it offers security software as part of its product portfolio.

Ashampoo chief executive Rolf Hilchner emailed customers and posted a message on the software vendor’s website after discovering that hackers had gained access to one of its servers.
