Updated Fashion brands Guess and Spread Group have confirmed data breaches in which crooks walked off with US Social Security Numbers (SSNs), contracts, passwords, payment details, and more.
The two companies were breached in separate attacks earlier this year, statements released by both confirmed, with a range of personal data leaked as a result. Guess warned that SSNs, driving licence numbers, passport numbers, and financial account numbers of “certain individuals” had been obtained by the attackers; Spread Group, meanwhile, saw a somewhat wider breach leaking hashed passwords, payment details, and contract information for both customers and suppliers.
