UK’s biggest retail store CeX’s servers are hacked and millions of customers’ data got swiped by hackers. Yesterday, the dealers at CeX noticed that the data of their customers’ is missing. After some investigation, CeX stated that the two million customers’ personal information has been breached from their systems by hackers.
Many of the Reg readers inform CeX that they receive emails from Brit biz which contain their personal details including full name, residential address, E-mail ID and phone numbers.
The company says there are some users who lost their important data including their account password. They warn to all that weak passwords could be hacked easily hence if you want to be safe then make sure your account password is strong.
CeX also noticed that the data of some credit and debit cards is also swiped from their systems but they said that’s not a problem because they stopped this service in 2009. So, the cards’ detail is likely to get expired till now.
“We take the protection of customer data extremely seriously and have always had a robust security programme in place which we continually reviewed and updated to meet the latest online threats.” CeX statement.
The company says that investigation for this data breach is under process and there would be priority to implement the security measures to prevent such kind of activities in the future.
