Interest-free credit provider, Divide Buy, have been the subject of a data breach.

At this point it’s not known how many of its customers have been affected by the breach, however, communications from the firm have confirmed which personal data has been breached:

Unfortunately, I am writing to you to let you know that earlier this week we discovered that DivideBuy and its customers (including you) have been the victims of a cyber incident, which involved some of your personal data being accessed. I wanted to write to you as soon as I could, to let you know what we have discovered so far, and how we are going to protect you against any consequences of this attack.

Details of the Data Breach

In the last few days, since becoming aware of the incident, we have been working hard, together with external specialists, to make sure that all data is secure and that an attack of this kind cannot happen again.

We have also established that within the information that was accessed it may be possible to identify:

  • Name
  • Date of Birth
  • Address
  • Telephone Number
  • Email address
  • Associated Alias

Although some credit report information was also contained within the material that was accessed, this was not stored in a readable format and so is not likely to be able to be used by the person or persons who accessed it.

Very little information has been released by Divide Buy regarding how this breach happened, who was responsible for the attack or when it took place. Their website is currently reporting high levels of traffic as customers visit trying to get more answers.
