    Their account is somewhat contradictory.
    If "we discovered the break-in and interrupted it instantly" then how come "the stolen pieces of information are data of addresses such as name and e-mail address"?

    Well, they could have discovered it hours after it was hacked and stopped it as soon as they discovered it..

    Amazing how so many companies run on systems ridden with such security issues.

    I suppose it depend on which way you parse their sentence:
    (we discovered the break-in and interrupted it) instantly
    or
    (we discovered the break-in) and (interrupted it instantly)
