Theme gone after ‘update’ |

Hi, I wanted to share something that might have further implications.
I hope I can keep this short and clear for everyone.

I’m the creator of a custom theme (not on the market) called ‘velox’.
There is also an other creator with a theme that has the same name / theme folder.

The style.css inside however is vastly different. Yet the most strange thing I ever encountered happend. Because I had an update pending I hit the update theme link’ After the update was complete my custom theme was replaced with this

How is this possible, we share the same folder theme, but not the stylesheet. How can my complete theme be overwritten by this theme?
