Cyber criminals hacked the website of cosmetic firm Lush where customer credit card details have been compromised. Although, the company did not release the fraud amount, it is estimated to be significant as the incident may have spanned four months. The firm took the site down after discovering the breach on Christmas day and started investigating the incident.
Another breach incident happened to Trapster, a firm that provides road safety services and police speed traps alerts. Attackers broke into the website and retrieved millions of users’ email addresses and passwords. The stolen user information could be used as a spam source. Trapster immediately warned their customers and instructed them to change their passwords, and avoid using the disclosed credentials on other sites.
