      Attributable to a Sky spokesperson:

      Statement from Sky on ACS:Law

      We are very concerned at the apparent security breach involving data held by ACS:Law. At this stage of our investigation, we believe that the data included the names and addresses of around 4,000 Sky Broadband customers.

      Like other broadband providers, Sky can be required by Court Order to disclose information about customers whose accounts are alleged to have been used for illegal downloading. We only ever provide such data in encrypted form and we never disclosed credit card or bank details to ACS:Law.
      On that last paragraph it should be noted that Sky could of said no to giving out peoples details. Virgin Media and Talk Talk have refused and the Law firm simply stopped asking them. Focusing on Sky who apparently doesn't value its customers privacy.

      The Information Commissioner could levy a potentially ruinous fine of up to 500,000 on the London law firm from which the personal details of more than 8,000 Sky broadband customers, 400 Plusnet customers and 5,000 Britons accused of illicit filesharing have leaked in the past few days.
      Law firm could face 500,000 fine over data breach | Media | guardian.co.uk

      My bold.

      Re: Statement from Sky on ACS:Law

      I have seen some of the leaked files and can confirm there is spreadsheet with 8040 records (maybe some customers duplicated for different songs) of sky customers that were being chased for MUSIC related offences including the persons names, address and details of phone calls between them and ACS. There is also another spreadsheet with a further 5k sky customers being chased for a variety of Adult titles though I see no names on this I expect they are linked else where. There are also smaller lists for other ISPs such as BT, Zen and PulseNet and O2. Looks like only really Virgin Media and Talk Talk that completely resisted and Sky gave out thousands more than all the other ISPs put together.

      Overall the sheer amount of data lost boggles the mind!

      EDIT: I should say shared with the whole internet as opposed to lost.

      ALSO you should note that ACS sends letters out in batches so it can focus on one set of targets(victims) at at time. So even if you haven't had a letter from them it doesn't mean that they didn't have you on one of their lists so your data might be out there!!!! In theory if you haven't paid them anything it should "only" be your name and address next to a file (adult or music) that you may or may not have downloaded.
