OnePlus this week revealed 40,000 customers were affected by a recent security breach.
We reported on the issue a few days ago because one of our own reporter’s credit card information was hijacked. OnePlus acknowledged a possible breach but didn’t share details. Now, the company has addressed the issue in more detail, revealing up to 40,000 customers may have had their credit card information stolen.
OnePlus reveals the breach was due to a malicious script being injected into its payment system, giving hackers free access to credit card information. Customers who purchased something through OnePlus.net from mid-November 2017 and January 11, 2018 may have been affected.
An email is being sent out to all of those whose information may have been compromised.
If you are a customer who was affected by the issue, there are a few things you can do. First, and most importantly, go through your bank statement and report any fishy charges. You may also want to cancel your current credit card just to be on the safe side. OnePlus also has a support team you can contact in case you have other issues.
It doesn’t matter how safe you are, your information will likely be compromised in one way or another.
