The credit card details of 93,000 Web.com customers have been stolen by hackers.

The name, address and credit card number of the affected customers were accessed. The verification numbers (from the back of the cards) were not stolen.

Web.com said the attack was discovered August 13 and has been reported to the proper authorities.

Network Solutions and Register.com, its leading registrar businesses, were not affected, the company said.

It has 3.3 million customers. Those whose details were stolen have been emailed and will receive a letter in the mail.

The company said it will provide affected customers with a year of free credit monitoring.
