Shut the front door: Jewson 'fesses up to data breach

adam payne

'As a Jewson Direct customers, we regrettably are writing to inform you that our website ( has suffered a security breach and, as a result, your personal data including your credit/ debit card details may have been compromised.'

Plain text?

'No card data is stored by Jewson, however, until the investigation has been completed, customers have been informed of a potential breach of card data as an advisory measure.'

This additional statement makes it look like you don't know what information your systems store. Unless of course you suspect the code that was inserted was possibly stealing card data as it was entered.
