Personal and financial information, including names, billing and delivery addresses, phone numbers, order details and the final four digits of payment cards of approximately 10 million customers of Fashion retailer JD Sports were potentially accessed by hackers in a cyber-attack.
This data is related to some online orders placed between November 2018 and October 2020.
The affected JD Sports group brands are JD, Millets, Blacks, Scott’s, and Millet Sport. If exploited, this information could be used by cybercriminals to attempt phishing attacks, which could lead to financial loss or even identity theft.
JD Sports is contacting affected customers to advise them to be vigilant to the risk of fraud and phishing attacks. This includes being on the look-out for any suspicious or unusual communications purporting to be from JD Sports or any of its group brands.
What should you do?
You may or may not shop at a JD Sports outlet but, this kind of attack happens all too often – the hackers are constantly trying to breach company IT systems and not just the large retailers.
If you have been hacked, or feel you need advice or support to bolster your IT systems, why not give one of our friendly and knowledgeable team at Trichromic a call on: 020 3327 0310.
