Non denial denial
Possible access - gotta love use of the English language.  A broken window and door indicates it may be possible that a thief broke into my home.  Not probable, just possible.  As if that is kinda sorta not really something to worry about.  How about HONESTY and say we were breached, access to data was public and here is we have done and will do to protect your data in case YOU were compromised.
