Irish bookmaker Paddy Power has revealed its website was hacked in 2010 and personal details of more than 649,000 customers stolen.

The breach was revealed on Thursday as the bookie wrote to inform customers of the incident.

The stolen data included names, addresses, dates of birth, and details of the question and answer prompts often used to verify account details. However, the company said that no personal financial information had been taken.

Peter O'Donovan, managing director of Paddy Power's online division, said: "We sincerely regret that this breach occurred and we apologise to people who have been inconvenienced as a result. We take our responsibilities regarding customer data extremely seriously and have conducted an extensive investigation into the breach and the recovered data. That investigation shows that there is no evidence that any customer accounts have been adversely impacted by this breach."

Got to love open and transparency! Stolen in 2010 revealed in 2014.
