“Jambox wireless speaker creator Jawbone is singing the blues today. It alerted users early this morning to a hack on its MyTalk network that left names, email addresses, and encrypted passwords compromised.”
The MyTalk network is platform where they can update, find and download apps for Jawbone devices. A customer has voluntarily reported he has received this message on twitter. It reads “Based on our investigation to date, we do not believe there has been any unauthorized use of login information or unauthorized access to information in your account.”
Jawbone says that “because your password was taken was encrypted and none of “the actual letters and numbers in your password” were revealed, hackers have ways to decrypt information”.
