Have you been contacted by Cake Box to say your personal data is at risk? If so, you might be eligible to make a GDPR compensation claim on a No Win, No Fee basis.
The data breach happened on 27th April 2020, after an unauthorised third party gained access to Global Payments, a payment processing provider used by Cake Box. The cyber-criminals managed to place malware onto the website which allowed them to copy payment information from purchases made online.
What Data Was Breached?
It’s not yet known how many Cake Box customers have been affected by the data breach, but some customers have already reported fraudulent purchases made using their card details. So far, we know that both personal and financial customer details have been exposed, including:
- First names and surnames
- Email addresses
- Postal addresses
- Payment card information, including the 3 digit CVV code on customers’ debit or credit card
The nature of the breach suggests that the personal data was not encrypted, which makes it easier for cybercriminals to access.
Even if you’ve not been contacted directly about the breach, we recommend updating your password and keeping an eye out for any suspicious activity if you’re a Cake Box customer.
