Alerted by an anonymous e-mail, a medical device company hired Stroz Friedberg to investigate the source and scope of a data breach into a SQL database holding personal customer information. Following preservation and analysis of the company’s Web server and associated databases and log files, Stroz Friedberg successfully identified the vulnerability in the company’s e-commerce software that had been exploited by the intruder to gain unauthorized access to the customer database, and the IP addresses used by the intruder(s). In addition, Stroz Friedberg determined which customer accounts had been compromised and assisted the company in compiling contact information for all customers to be notified of the breach. The investigative findings were compiled in a written report presented by Stroz Friedberg to investigative agents of the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
