UK based sports fashion retailer with worldwide exposure has announced that its systems have sustained a cyber breach which has enabled Hackers to steal data of approximately 10 million customers.

In an urgent Press Release JD Sports said that the breach had affected JD Sports group brands are JD, Size?, Millets, Blacks, Scotts and MilletSport. They say that the affected data is limited and doesn't include full payment card data and, further, confirmed that there has no reason to believe that account passwords were accessed.

The information that may have been accessed consists of the name, billing address, delivery address, email address, phone number, order details and the final four digits of payment cards of approximately 10 million unique customers.

Neil Greenhalgh, Chief Financial Officer of JD Sports, said: "We want to apologise to those customers who may have been affected by this incident. We are advising them to be vigilant about potential scam e-mails, calls and texts and providing details on how to report these. We are continuing with a full review of our cyber security in partnership with external specialists following this incident. Protecting the data of our customers is an absolute priority for JD."

However, still NO actionable advice from JD Sports for their customers that have been caught up in their hack!
