Criminals may have stolen more than half a million credit card numbers 
from merchant servers hosted by Networks Solutions, the Internet hosting 
company warned Friday.

In a letter sent to merchants who use its Ecommerce Hosting services, 
the company said that someone illegally installed software on company 
servers used handle credit card transactions initiated by 573,928 people 
between March 12 and June 8, 2009.

The code "may have been used to transfer data on certain transactions 
for approximately 4,343 of our more than 10,000 merchant Websites 
outside the company," Network Solutions said in the letter, signed by 
company chairman and CEO Roy Dunbar and sent to merchants on Friday.

Consumers who were possibly affected by the intrusion are also being 
notified by credit monitoring service TransUnion. They will get 12 
months of free credit monitoring.
