Coleman Campaign Hacked, Online Donor Info Stolen

Norm Coleman’s Senate campaign (yes, there is still one Senate seat 'up for grabs') was hacked. Their online donor's credit card information was stolen. The people effected started getting emails from a email address stating that personal information about them was about to be posted the website. The Coleman campaign sent an email to those donors soon after saying that they were concerned that their firewall had been breached in January.

The Coleman campaign is encouraging people who donated to them to cancel their credit cards. confirms that there was a breach and the information posted at the site is legitimate.
