Samsung told its customers to be careful because of the leak of personal data in July. This was revealed only a couple of days ago, so the company wasn’t able to notify everyone sooner. The company assured customers that the leak didn’t affect social security numbers or credit cards stored in the system.
However, as a result, according to Samsung, information including names, contact and demographic information, dates of birth, and product registration information was compromised. There has been no official word on the number of people affected at this time. However, if you received a notification about this, it means that your data was also involved in the leak.
What to do about it?
For its part, Samsung is addressing the issue. Explaining that they are trying to solve the problem by engaging a private cybersecurity company and law enforcement. So at this point, all that remains is to wait for further advice and news from Samsung.
Unfortunately in today’s world, such problems aren’t uncommon. The same company Samsung has already suffered more than once in similar cases. In March, the technology company announced that hackers had uncovered the company’s internal data, affecting Galaxy smartphones. However, this doesn’t mean that Samsung makes a low-quality product, it indicates that cybercrime has increased in our world.
