  sallink 06:59 02 Jul 2018

On 26th of June Adidas announced that details of its US customers who purchased products online had been exposed following a security breach.

The company hasn’t provided any details as to how many customers might be affected, but it did say that information like contact details, physical addresses, and email info were exposed. Login information, like username and passwords, might have leaked as well. An investigation has already started, and in the meantime, customers who are afraid that their data was compromised can take further actions, like changing their passwords on services where the same credentials are being used. While Adidas says the passwords were encrypted, the exact damage following the breach will be shared when the investigation comes an end. On the other hand, credit card data and fitness information were not exposed, but the company has started notifying affected customers of the security breach.

“adidas today announced that it is alerting certain consumers who purchased on about a potential data security incident. On June 26, adidas became aware that an unauthorized party claims to have acquired limited data associated with certain adidas consumers,” the company noted.

Do you have a wider point to make?

As far as I can see you are simply repeating information that has received wide publicity in the media.
