The breach of toy manufacturer VTech is receiving the attention of at least two U.S. attorneys general (AG) and the data protection commissioner of Hong Kong, Reuters reports. State AGs from Connecticut and Illinois said Monday they were looking into the incident but declined to provide details on where they were focusing their attention. Hong Kong Commissioner for Personal Data Stephen Wong said his agency has initiated a “compliance check” to see if the company abided by data privacy principles, the report states. Wong also said, as of yet, there is no “adequate or sufficient information” that the children were specifically targeted in the incident. Motherboard reported last Friday that the personal data of approximately 5 million customers, including 200,000 children, had been compromised.
