Boots Advantage Card and Tesco Clubcard customers targeted by hackers

We’re only in March, and we’ve already seen LOQBOX hacked, MGM breached, and Travelex held to ransom this year. Now, Boots Advantage Card and Tesco Clubcard customers have been targeted by hackers too.

Warnings have been issued by both retailers, and Boots has suspended people being able to use loyalty points for payments. Around 600,000 Tesco Clubcard customers are thought to have been targeted, and it may be the same hackers behind the attacks.

It’s important to point out that neither Boots nor Tesco’s systems have been compromised, according to their communication. This appears to be a case of hackers using information stolen from separate hacks to then try and break into Boots and Tesco customer accounts. This is precisely why we point out that even small attacks can lead to wider problems, and why people should never use the same login credentials across multiple platforms.

Fraudsters targeting first-time buyers


According to credit-reference agency Experian, there are increasing incidents of fraudsters targeting first-time buyers, and some of it can be related to data breaches.

As a firm of expert data breach compensation lawyers, this news doesn’t come as a surprise to us at all. First-time buyers can be vulnerable to the kinds of tricks and scams that criminals can pull off, particularly because of being thrown into the world of owning a home for the first time. Criminals could pose as a number of organisations or parties, and they could use information from data breaches to convince people that they’re the real deal.

This kind of problem demonstrates how bad a simple data breach can actually be for a victim when criminals use even small bits of seemingly “harmless” data that has been exposed in a breach to do serious damage.

You can be eligible to make a claim for cyber-attack compensation if your data has been exposed as a result of a hack.

Ultimately, the law is clear in terms of the responsibility organisations have to safeguard the data that they store and process. It’s their job to ensure that they have proper cybersecurity in place to prevent a breach incident taking place, and if they fail to do so, victims are well within their rights to justice.

Questions over the Dell data breach

data breach deleting information

There are questions that remain unanswered following the Dell data breach incident that took place last month.

It’s still not fully clear as to whether any data was taken. If it was, whose data was exposed, and how much of it was exposed? It has been suggested that all Dell customers ought to change their password just in case, and they should also remain vigilant. The data breach activity that was detected in November identified an attempt to steal customer information. All that’s known is that it’s possible some data was taken.

This was another high-profile data breach, and another where a reactive approach as opposed to a proactive approach appears to have been taken. Read More
