Data breach at Bonobos hits 7 million customers: What to do

  • Seventy gigabytes’ worth of customer data stolen from the website of U.S. men’s clothing retailer Bonobos has been posted in a hacker forum.
  • The data includes the names and telephone numbers associated with 7 million customers or orders, 3.5 million records containing the last four digits of credit card numbers, and account information for 1.8 million customers, including passwords encrypted with the SHA-256 and SHA-512 hashing algorithms.
  • The company said it would be forcing password resets for any account for which the password was compromised.
  • “We’re emailing customers to notify them that their contact information and encrypted passwords may have been viewed by an unauthorized third party,” Bonobos said. “Payment information was not affected by this issue.”
