About: INFORMATION UPDATE ABOUT TODAY’S EVENTS
Message:

New information has become available regarding today’s events. We are in a position to confirm that the attack came from inside China and that it was probably caused by a criminal organization trying to access credit card information that could be used in illegal activities in the future. Our preliminary investigation shows that the attack can be traced to a series of IP addresses in Chengdu. We have notified the authorities about this finding.

We can also confirm that the attackers were able to break into our system because we did not have proper security measures in place. We are currently trying to locate who is directly responsible for missing to implement proper security measures.

We will update you when more information becomes available.
