(Hzone later apologized.) But that's not the end of the story. Among other twists and turns that point to a CEO who was in way over his head, in several emails to Dissent, the admin of DataBreaches.net, Hzone CEO Justin Robert accused Dissent of changing the Hzone user database. But follow-up emails suggest that the company couldn't tell what was accessed or when, as Robert says Hzone doesn't have 'a strong tech team to maintain the site.'
