Razer Data Leak

Hardware manufacturer Razer suffered a data leak in August that exposed customer order details and shipping information (thanks Security Affairs via Neutronbeam). Details on the lapse can be found in a post on LinkedIn by security researcher Volodymyr "Bob" Diachenko, who estimates the total number of affected customers to be around 100K. Razer stresses that no credit card information or passwords were exposed, but Bob warns customers whose data was mined that they may be subject to targeted phishing attacks as a result. Razer, who, perhaps ironically, are reportedly pursuing a bank license, had the following to say about the matter:
We were made aware by Mr. Volodymyr of a server misconfiguration that potentially exposed order details, customer and shipping information. No other sensitive data such as credit card numbers or passwords was exposed.

The server misconfiguration has been fixed on 9 Sept, prior to the lapse being made public.

We would like to thank you, sincerely apologize for the lapse and have taken all necessary steps to fix the issue as well as conduct a thorough review of our IT security and systems. We remain committed to ensure the digital safety and security of all our customers.

Is it really a leak if you never bothered to do anything to secure the data at all?

Razer, who forces you to register a Razer account to use their mice with the info included in the mouse tool it starts with windows, has leaked some data? Oh, wow, I soooo want to use their mice even more... NOT.

They had a mouse software online that did not need you to register and include the info in the software but changed that later on. Changing a deal later is not a way to make you customer trust you, Razer. And losing data does not make trusting you any easier...
