Ca: Loblaws suffers another online security breach

Patrick O’Rourke reports:

According to an email sent out to Loblaws account holders, the security of a ‘small number’ of accounts has been compromised, marking the second time the company has suffered a security breach this year.

The last time Loblaws’ websites suffered a breach, the company reset all subscriber passwords, though in that case the issue only affected Loblaws’ PC Plus Program. As it stands right now, it doesn’t look like Loblaws is opting for that strategy this time, though the company does recommend users reset their passwords as a security precaution.

Comprised websites include Loblaws.ca, Joefresh.com and Beautyboutique.ca, as well as other Loblaws grocery chain websites.
