Millions of mobile phone customers have been hit by a new cyber attack.
Many companies have been affected by this, including Carphone Warehouse.
There could be up to 2.4 million Carphone Warehouse customers affected by hackers and had their personal details accessed after the firm was targeted by hackers.
Dixons Carphone, the parent firm of Carphone Warehouse, said names, addresses, dates of birth and bank details may be among the information in the security breach. Encrypted credit card details of up to 90,000 customers may also have been accessed in the hack which happened a few days ago on 5th August.
Sky news say ‘The division affected operates the websites OneStopPhoneShop.com, e2save.com and Mobiles.co.uk. and all of these websites were down on Saturday afternoon.’
Sky news continued ‘The attacked division also provides a number of services to iD Mobile, TalkTalk Mobile, Talk Mobile, and to certain customers of Carphone Warehouse, the statement said.’
The attack has been described as “sophisticated” and said a leading cyber security firm had been drafted in to work out what information had been compromised.
