The company, displeased with having the security incident disclosed, responded to an email notification from DataBreaches.net with this threat: "Why do you want to do this? What's your purpose? We are just a business for HIV people. If you want money from us, I believe you will be disappointed. And, I believe your illegal and stupid behavior will be notified by our HIV users and you and your concerns will be revenged by all of us. I suppose you and your family members don't want to get HIV from us? If you do, go ahead." Hzone later apologized for the threat.
