Up to 40K Affected in Credit Card Breach at OnePlus

The smartphone manufacturer has sent an email to anyone who may have been affected in the breach.

Chinese smartphone manufacturer OnePlus has reported a credit card breach affecting up to 40,000 users at oneplus.net. Users who entered their credit card data on the website between mid-November 2017 and January 11, 2018 could be at risk.

Over the weekend of Jan. 13, OnePlus customers reported unknown credit card transactions appearing on their accounts following purchases from oneplus.net. The company began an investigation and learned one of its systems was attacked. A malicious script was injected into the payment page code to discover credit card information as it was being entered.

The malicious script has been eliminated, the infected server quarantined, and all relevant system structures reinforced. Users who paid using a saved credit card, the "Credit Card via PayPal" option, or PayPal should not be affected, OnePlus reports.

"This breach should be a reminder that HTTPS, while encrypted, is not a guarantee of a secure transaction as attackers can compromise the systems at both ends of any encrypted conversation," says Chris Morales, head of security analytics at Vectra.

@REISEN: Same here, the other day.

I'm not even a Chase customer. So extra #FAIL on that one.

But, then again, they do deal in volume.

Chase Bank
Just received a suspect email regarding insufficient funds in my chase account.  Oh, click on this link to verify.  I AM NOT DUMB so checked the account NORMAL method and funds there,  nobody hacked - so if you have a breach it comes often from some dumb user clicking on a bad link and off to hell the game goes.
