SINGAPORE – Singapore’s privacy watchdog is investigating a data breach involving home-grown fashion label Love, Bonito, after it reported that its online users’ data had been compromised.
On Friday (Dec 13), the retailer, which has three stores in Singapore, sent an e-mail to its online customers telling them that the data breach had been confirmed on Tuesday and a malicious code had been added to its e-commerce website.
The malicious code has since been removed.
In the e-mail, Love, Bonito’s co-founder Rachel Lim said that based on the company’s investigations, some of its customers’ personal information may have been exposed, including credit card numbers, expiry dates and CVVs, full names, shipping addresses, order details and phone numbers.
The e-mail did not say how many people were affected by the breach.
Responding to queries from The Straits Times about how it was alerted to the breach, a company spokesman apologised and said that a “small number” of its customers, were affected.
