GoGrid customers received an email yesterday, notifying them of a security breach.  According to the notification, an "unauthorized third party may have viewed your (customer) account information".

It seems that GoGrid acted promptly to contain the information leak.  GoGrid believes that the security breach has been contained for the following reasons:

"1. The method utilized by the suspect to gain access has been identified and remediated.
2. It appears that the suspect’s sole motive was to acquire free services from us. We have no evidence suggesting that the suspect was targeting customer infrastructure or payment cards.
3. We have no indication that any customer information was shared with any other unauthorized parties or that there has been unauthorized use of any cardholder’s data."

Compromised customers will be offered credit monitoring services on GoGrid's tab.
