The online flower retailer said in a letter to the California Department of Justice that for a 33-hour period – stretching from the evening of Feb. 15 to early morning on Feb. 17 – an attacker collected the name, address, email address, payment card number along with its expiration date and CVV security code of all those placing or attempting to place orders on the site.
