Spread Group: Data manipulation
It was announced on Monday that the spread group had been under a hacking attack. The company said the attack was “organised” and carried out with “high criminal energy”. Unknown attackers managed to “gain access to internal data”.
According to the company, the cyber attack affects the address and contract data of customers, partners, employees and external service providers. In addition, “the payment data of a small proportion of customers who paid by bank transfer on SpreadShirts, SpreadShop or TeamShirts and received reimbursement is also compressed,” explains Spread Group. Partner companies that receive commission from the spread group are also affected by the attack. The attackers would have access to the bank details and PayPal addresses of these partners. For all other customers, at least as of the current state of the investigation, no account information was stored on the affected servers.
Customers should change their password
According to the spread group, the people affected by the cyber attack were informed about the incident. As a precaution, all customers should change their password. Meanwhile, the investigation is on. According to the company, the company’s IT crisis team is working closely with external security experts. Investigating officers are also involved in this.
The Leipzig-based company concluded that the cyberattack had no impact on production or further business operations. Spread Group is “fully capable of production and distribution.”
