Millions of Customer Records Leaked in CeX Hack

High street second-hand electronics chain CeX has been subject to a monumental security breach, involving the theft of personal details and payment information.

Customers of the high street gadget chain were informed by the company in an email sent by the Managing Director.

The data includes some personal information such as first name, surname, addresses, email address and phone number if this was supplied.

It’s not believed that any point of sale data has been leaked as part of this breach.

In a small number of instances, it may include encrypted data from expired credit and debit cards up to 2009. No further financial information has been shared.

CeX advises all customers to change their passwords at webuy.com as well as on any other websites that might share the same password.

You can also see if your email address has been leaked in similar attacks, at ‘have I been pwnd’.
