Multiple e-commerce sites belonging to Warner Music Group have suffered Magecart style attacks according to a breach notification letter that was filed yesterday with the California Attorney Generals Office. The music mogul said the attacks happened between April 25th and August 5th and affected sites that used a third-party hosting company. Warner also added “Any personal information you entered into one or more of the affected websites between April 25, 2020 and August 5, 2020 after placing an item in your shopping cart was potentially acquired by the unauthorized third party. This could have included your name, email address, telephone number, billing address, shipping address, and payment card detail.” They did reassure that payments made through PayPal were not affected, however. Many users were irritated because the breach notification letter did not disclose which e-commerce sites were impacted, so it was difficult for users to determine if their information may have been compromised. Free credit monitoring is being offered through Warner by Kroll for anyone who may have been affected.
