LOQBOX Data Breach Announcement
Customers of LOQBOX have received notification that the company was hacked on 20th February 2020.
LOQBOX say they have been trying to identify who has been affected which is why some customers have only been notified over the weekend.
They have admitted that it is “extremely likely” that personal information has been compromised as a result of the cyberattack. Information that may have been exposed includes:
- Birth dates;
- Email addresses;
- Telephone numbers;
- Payment card data - which may include the first six and last digits of the 16-digit card number and the expiration date.
This kind of data exposed means that victims can be at immediate risk of fraud. Although LOQBOX states that they could only notify some customers over the weekend once they knew that they had been affected, a general announcement could have been made as soon as the attack was discovered. Instead, criminals have had more than a week to misuse exposed data, and it may be that some have people already fallen victim to serious crimes and theft.
The announcement from LOQBOX suggests that more could have been done to protect their systems and the personal data of their customers:
“We became aware of the attack very shortly after it happened on 20 February 2020 at which point we immediately took steps to protect the system and your personal information.”
“We constantly monitor our systems but have now taken further steps to improve the defences of the LOQBOX computer system.”
