Condé Nast notifies 1,100 WIRED subscribers after subscriber page vendor breach

Condé Nast is notifying about 1,100 WIRED subscribers of a breach involving their payment information.

In a notification letter dated May 9, they write:

The WIRED subscription page is hosted by a third-party vendor. We believe that an unauthorized party accessed our vendor’s systems in an attempt to acquire information about approximately 1,100 WIRED subscription transactions processed between April 14 and April 17, 2019.
An investigation was undertaken and, by April 24, we learned that the information that may have been acquired included names, postal and email addresses, and credit/debit card numbers, security codes, and card
expiration dates.
The unsigned notification does not name the vendor for the WIRED subscription page.
Those affected are being offered Experian’s IdentityWorks credit monitoring and identity protection services for one year.
