Camelot warns of 'low level' National Lottery hack
National Lottery owner Camelot has warned of a "Low level" cyber-attack that affected 150 customer accounts. The hackers used credentials gleaned from a list circulated on the internet to get into the accounts, a Camelot spokeswoman said. "As part of our regular security monitoring, we have seen some suspicious activity on a very small number of players' accounts," Camelot said in an email to customers. Customers can normally use their debit card details to transfer money into their National Lottery accounts, then use those funds to buy online lottery tickets or scratch cards. Camelot warned in November 2016 that about 26,500 National Lottery accounts could have been hacked.
