LOQBOX Hacked:
Victims Can Claim Compensation

A recent court ruling has also allowed victims to be able to make a claim even if no distress or loss has been caused, so you should speak to our team about your options if you have received confirmation that you were affected.

We have started investigations on behalf of the clients that we represent. We will be looking for early answers to key questions about this attack, such as:

  • How LOQBOX was hacked;
  • What more could have been done to have prevented the cyberattack;
  • Steps taken in aftermath of the data breach, and whether such steps could have been taken prior to the breach;
  • How many people have been affected, and what information for each of them has been exposed.

Ultimately, if this data breach was preventable, victims should be entitled to compensation for any injury, distress and losses suffered.

As a leading firm in the field of data breach compensation claims, our experts are fighting for justice in dozens of data breach actions similar to the LOQBOX breach and are on hand to help you. We have already accepted several cases arising from this data breach. If you have been affected, all you need to do is contact our team for free, no-obligation advice about your options to achieve justice.

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:

  • Names;
  • Addresses;
  • 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.”
