Exclusive: What Happened? A dispute between NightLion Security and Astoria Company Escalates

A DataBreaches.net exclusive: It is not uncommon for a firm to deny allegations that they have been breached. It is not uncommon for a firm to acknowledge that there has been a breach but claim that it is not as dramatic as a researcher might claim. And it is not uncommon for researchers to receive legal threat letters concerning their claims, as this blogger is all too painfully aware. But in my experience, it is uncommon that months after a breach claim, the controversy is escalating instead of coming closer to resolution. But that is precisely appears to be what is happening between NightLion Security and Astoria Company LLC. In a new report, What Happened?  DataBreaches.net discusses a disputed breach report.
