Warning after Kiddiecare website is hacked
Kiddiecare have said only a ‘small number’ of customers have been affected…
A small number of customers received a “possible phishing communication” in the form of a text message from a website claiming to be a subsidiary of Kiddicare.com
The text message invited the customer to take part in a survey.
Customers’ names, delivery addresses, emails and phone numbers were exposed in the hack, but the company said no payment details were accessed.
However Kiddiecare said credit and debit card information is not stored by the company on its systems and increased security is now in place.
Kiddiecares website says “The personal information exposed has limited use and therefore the risk to you is low. However any personal information can be used in phishing attacks and scams and so you should be extra vigilant and be alert to any suspicious communication. If you are unsure whether a communication is genuine, you should always contact the company the message is purporting to be from to confirm authenticity.”
