It turns out the VTech hacker is hoarding more than just the personal data of millions of customers.  The alleged mastermind behind the fourth largest consumer data breach told Motherboard that the hack exposed other sensitive information, including children’s photos and chat logs between kids and parents.

The hacker, whose identity was not revealed, said he or she was able to collect conversations and headshots from the company’s Kid Connect service, which allows parents and kids to chat via a smartphone app and VTech tablet. The oldest logs were dated from the end of 2014; the most recent came from last month.

A Nov. 14 hack of the Learning Lodge database exposed names, email addresses, passwords, home addresses, and download histories of 4.8 million adults who purchased products online. The first names, genders, and birthdays of more than 200,000 kids were also exposed. VTech’s customer index does not contain credit card information.
