This past weekend the Boston Globe unveiled Carbonite has lost data of 7,500+ customers who relied on the company to keep their files safe.

The newspaper gets the information from a lawsuit that was filed by the Boston company last week, alleging that two of its service providers sold it over $3 million worth of defective hardware, linking this to the loss of their customer’s data and as a result, bringing “substantial damage” to its business and reputation.
