Canadian sportswear brand Louis Garneau Sports has experienced a data breach that has led to the theft of its customers’ card information. The breach was discovered after the company identified an “unauthorized code” in its systems between June 8th and July 28th. An investigation revealed that this malicious code was responsible for skimming personal data during the purchasing process.
The compromised data includes a range of personal details such as names, surnames, emails, and home addresses. Additionally, sensitive information such as account numbers and credit or debit card numbers, along with their corresponding security or access codes, were also stolen by the threat actors behind the breach.
While Louis Garneau Sports asserts that there is currently “no evidence of actual misuse” of the stolen credit card data, the company is taking proactive measures to address the situation. Affected clients have been notified of the breach, and the company is offering free credit monitoring protection services for a duration of 12 months to mitigate potential risks. According to the Office of the Maine Attorney General, the breach impacted a total of 2,966 individuals.
