Nexus did nothing wrong in the eye of the law (as long as they reported the data security lack to the DPA within 72 hours). They are not forced to inform their users unless its absolutely clear that there is a high risk for the personal rights of the affected.
it would have been a nice move to make a quick post as information for all that sth happened... that its not clear what exactly... but that they recommend to change the passwords in any case... I always say "better save than sorry"

In response to post #75807248.I'm afraid it's not possible to quantify it exactly, we serve over 6,000 database queries per second, so it's impossible to log everything.
We do have around 10 saved logs for requests that look like direct attempts to access single users at a time, however, as we say in the main news post - we cannot be certain how many - if any - email addresses, password hashes and salts were actually accessed.
