Earlier this week UK National Lottery operator Camelot released a statement saying it believed hackers had accessed the accounts of around 26,500 of its 9.5 million online players:
"As part of our online security monitoring, we became aware of suspicious activity on a very small proportion of our players’ online National Lottery Accounts"
Thankfully, fewer than 50 of those accounts have been touched since the hackers accessed them. And any activity was limited to personal details being changed, potentially by the players themselves. Camelot clarified:
"We do not hold full debit card or bank account details in National Lottery players’ online accounts and no money has been taken or deposited."
