Data Breach from OnePlus Effecting up to 40,000 Customers

Attention all One Plus owners your credit cards may be in danger.

What we know:
As many as 40,000 customers payment info may be compromised.

How do you know if you’re one of them:
If you’ve purchased anything from from mid-November of 2017 up until last week. And entered a new form of card payment. You fit the criteria.

What do I do:
OnePlus should have already contacted you via email. If not, then they are suggesting to contact them immediately.
After something like this, it’s always good to monitor all your transactions. Fortunately, there is a silver lining, OnePlus is trying to find a way to offer all those affected free one year credit monitoring.

A statement from OnePlus on its community forums says,

“One of our systems was attacked, and a malicious script was injected into the payment page code to sniff out credit card info while it was being entered.”

The script intermittently captured data before sending it from users’ browser back to the hackers responsible for the attack.

OnePlus says it has now quarantined the infected server and reinforced all related security systems.
