CEX & Onliner 713 million unique email addresses & passwords leaked / breached

CEX & Onliner 713 million unique email addresses & passwords leaked / breached

30th August 2017, CEX the UK secondhand video game & consumer electronics store has been part of a data breach that is rumored to have impacted 2,000,000+ accounts, also a spambot called ‘Onliner’ has also leaked 711,000,000 emails and password combinations including ours! This is similar to the Google, Yahoo, Hotmail and Mail.ru leaks back in 2016.

CEX

The compromised data includes personal information such as first name, surname, addresses, email address and phone number, and “in a small number of instances”, encrypted data from expired credit or debit cards. CEX stressed that it did not have any current card data stored for customers’ accounts as it ceased storing customer card details in 2009. The breach affects CEX’s registered website customers only. It said there’s no indication in-store personal membership information has been compromised. In the meantime, if you have an online account with CEX you should change your password. If you use the same password elsewhere, you should change that, too.

How do I learn more about the CEX data leak?
