Another day, another major data breach.
Days after Exactis and Ticketmaster announced data leaks, the athletic apparel conglomerate, Adidas, announced on June 28th, 2018 that it has notified its customers about a recent cybersecurity incident. Hackers infiltrated Adidas’ U.S. website, uncovering millions of customers’ contact information, usernames, and encrypted passwords. While it appears that no payment information was stolen, consumers should be on alert.
If you were exposed in the Adidas data breach you should change your login information immediately. It won’t take long for someone to breach your other accounts that have similar username/password combinations. IdentityForce also has a series of tips in our latest eBook on how you can further protect personal information.
This is the latest in a string of retail data breaches that have compromised millions of consumers. In March 2018, Adidas competitor and fellow fitness retailer, UnderArmour experienced a data breach exposing 150 million users of its MyFitnessPal app. Less than a month later, hackers accessed the payment system of Saks Fifth Avenue and Lord & Taylor (Hudson’s Bay Co.) stealing more than 5 million customers’ credit cards.
