Electronic document-signing service Docsketch is notifying customers about a security breach that took place over the past summer.
In an email sent to customers and seen by ZDNet, the company said that an unauthorized third-party gained access to a copy of its database in early August this year.
The database file contained a snapshot of the Docsketch service dated July 9, 2020, the company said.
“This database contained contact information and form fields related to documents filled out by users and users’ recipients,” said Docsketch founder Ruben Gamez.
Gamez said the intruder(s) didn’t access the documents themselves, but they could read what information users filed inside the documents — such as names, signatures, personal data, and even payment card details, where required.
In addition, the database also contained login information and user contacts (persons asked to fill in documents).
