Is Easton-Bell Sports The Next Shoe Breach Experts Predicted?
J. Price reports:
Another US company has revealed a data breach has hit the servers used in conducting e-commerce. Easton-Bell Sports, which makes sports equipment and clothing under the Bell Sports, Blackburn, Easton, Giro and Riddell brands, announced the breach but did not disclose the name of the vendor from whom Easton data was lifted.
“(We) recently discovered that vendor servers were subject to a malicious software (“malware”) computer intrusion. We believe the incident may have begun on December 1, 2013. The servers that were accessed contained Easton-Bell e-commerce consumers’ information and may impact customers who made online purchases between December 1, 2013 and December 31, 2013,” the Van Nuys, California-based firm said.
