Adidas US Website Hit by Data Breach

The athletic apparel firm was hacked and data on potentially 'millions' of customers now at risk.

Adidas is the latest retailer to get hit with a data breach: the athletic apparel firm said it's alerting some customers that their data may have been exposed due to a newly discovered hack of its US website.

"On June 26, Adidas became aware that an unauthorized party claims to have acquired limited data associated with certain Adidas consumers," the company said in a statement on its website. Customer contact information, usernames, and encrypted passwords were exposed in the data breach.

According to some press reports, an Adidas spokesperson said the attack could have affected "millions" of customers. Adidas did not elaborate on the number of victims in its statement.

"Adidas has no reason to believe that any credit card or fitness information of those consumers was impacted," the company said, and it's currently working with security firms and law enforcement in an investigation into the attack.

@Ryan: Not every breach has to involve payment information.


Even without the encrypted passwords, we are absolutely talking about PII: usernames + contact information. And very little contact info indeed is needed to perpetuate notable harm.

When this is the case I believe the event to be an incident but not a breach. Release an email to the affected that you will be forcing a password change. Unless you can confirm that sensitive data sets were acquired I don't think there is any reason to declare a breach and it is more difficult to back track than it is to escalate severity once more data is found.

More to come....hopefully
When these go public there is many times a lack of detail until the Incident Report is released. These are the logistics I typically concern myself with.
