Malicious Code Designed To Scrape Credit Card Numbers And Other Personal Information May Have Been Present on Company’s E-Commerce Platform As Early As November 11, 2016
Kehoe Law Firm, P.C. is making consumers aware that Bombas LLC filed a “Notice of Data Breach” sample customer letter with the State of California Department of Justice, Office of the Attorney General, which stated, among other things, that Bombas, “. . . as part of a review of data security, . . . discovered that malicious code designed to scrape credit card numbers and other personal information may have been present as early as November 11, 2016 on [Bombas’] e-commerce platform.”
Further, the data breach notification stated that “[o]n May 20, 2020, [Bombas] received an investigative report, which could not rule out the possibility that the malicious code could have successfully scraped customer information. The report also confirmed that a new security feature, which was added to [Bombas’] e-commerce platform on February 16, 2017, prevented the malicious code from functioning after that date. Accordingly, there is a window from November 11, 2016 to February 16, 2017 during which customer information potentially could have been exposed.”
Bombas, according to the notification, “. . . believe[s] that the malicious code could have enabled the attacker to acquire certain personal information belonging to customers who entered their payment card information in [Bombas’] online checkout process during the relevant period. The affected information may have included [customer] name, address, and payment card data.” [Emphasis added.]
