Breach at famous French underwear company exposes personal data of 1.5 million shoppers

Prominent French underwear company Le Slip Français is warning customers that a cyberattack has exposed their personal information online.

According to a cybersecurity notice on the vendor’s official website, Le Slip Français learned of the unauthorized access and subsequent exfiltration of customer data on April 15.

What type of information was stolen?

While the disclosure notice does not specify the number of impacted individuals, Troy Hunt’s Have I Been Pwned platform reveals that hackers got away with the personally identifiable information of 1.5 million customers, including full names, telephone numbers, email addresses, postal addresses, and order numbers.

The company says it has filed a report with the French Data Protection Agency and is closely monitoring the situation to detect potential fraud. Le Slip Français also assured customers that no passwords or credit card data were stolen.

Customers are advised to contact the company via [email protected] for any questions regarding the incident.
