Breach May Hit 70,000 Loyalty Card Holders
DATA LOSS—IRELANDNovember 12, 2013
As many as 70,000 loyalty card holders may have had personal data compromised after Loyaltybuild sustained a “sophisticated” attack, BBC News reports. Supermarket chain Supervalu has told 62,500 customers who used a holiday offer to contact their banks, and AXA Ireland has said as many as 8,000 of its customers may have been affected. Loyaltybuild has contacted Ireland’s data protection commissioner and law enforcement and is investigating the incident. Supervalu is working with Loyaltybuild to resolve the incident but has also hired its own IT security consultants to investigate Loyaltybuild’s systems, the report states.
