Trapster.com, the creator of a mobile app that helps users evade speed traps, has warned its users about a breach in its user name and password database.
The company, which offers the app for iOS, Android and BlackBerry devices, sent out warning letters to users informing of the break-in, which is likely to affect the mobile app's 10 million userbase.
Trapster also published an FAQ, which explains to users what has happened and what steps they can take to protect their accounts.
The company said that it was aware how the breach occurred and has already rewritten the software code to correct the error, preventing something like this from happening again.
“Please note that we are taking these actions with our users as a precautionary measure. While we know that we experienced a security incident, it is not clear that the hackers successfully captured any e-mail addresses or passwords, and we have nothing to suggest that this information has been used,” the company said.
