California man indicted for stealing Shopify customer data

  • A California man has been indicted for stealing Shopify customer data with the help of two company employees.
  • The employees sent screenshots or Google Drive links with customers’ names, addresses, purchase histories, and other personal information.
  • Shopify acknowledged last year that two “rogue members” of its support team had breached customers’ security. It said the incident affected fewer than 200 merchants and emphasized that the breach stemmed from employees abusing their access rather than a technical vulnerability.
