Streaming video service Vudu informed customers on Tuesday that customer information was compromised following a break-in at its offices on March 24.
According to an email, hard drives taken during the burglary contained names, email and postal addresses, phone numbers, dates of birth and other information from customer accounts.
Partial credit card information was also stolen, the company said, although only the last four digits of some credit card numbers were stored on the hard drives.
Full credit card numbers were not kept in the offices, according to VUDU.
The company did not explain why it waited more than two weeks to inform customers.
The Santa Clara, California-based company was formed in 2004 and acquired by Walmart in 2010. It serves as the discount chain's primary online video streaming service, allowing customers to rent and purchase films and television shows through computers, gaming consoles and other devices.
Following the break-in, VUDU is instructing customers to reset their passwords on its website.
The company said it has also hired AllClear ID to provide identity protection services to customers from one year.
