Sportswear retailer JD Sports, following a cyber-attack, stated that stored information pertaining to 10 million consumers may be at danger.
The business claimed that, names, addresses, email addresses, phone numbers, order information, and the last four digits of bank cards were among the data that hackers "may have acquired." The information concerned purchases made online between November 2018 and October 2020.
Injured consumers were being contacted, according to JD Sports. According to the group, the affected data was "minimal." It noted that it didn't have all of the payment card information and didn't think the hackers had access to account passwords. The hack targeted online purchases made under the JD, Size, Millets, Blacks, Scotts, and MilletSport brands. It is believed that the corporation discovered the attack recently, but that only historical data was accessed.
In response to the breach, the corporation stated that it was collaborating with "renowned cyber-security specialists" and was speaking with the UK's Information Commissioner's Office (ICO). Several UK-based businesses have recently been the target of cyberattacks. Earlier this month, Royal Mail was the target of a ransomware assault, which forced it to stop sending mail and packages abroad.
