Hackers access 5.9m bank cards at Dixons Carphone

 

Dixons Carphone says it has been the victim of an "unauthorised data access" in which millions of customer bank card details were targeted over the past 12 months.

 

The company believed there were attempts since last July - only discovered over the past week - to compromise 5.9 million cards in one of its processing systems for Currys PC World and Dixons Travel stores.

 

It said there was currently no evidence of any fraudulent use of the information - with the vast majority of the cards having chip and pin protection.

 

However, Dixons Carphone said it had notified card providers to 105,000 non-EU issued cards that did not have chip and pin technology so those customers could be immediately protected.

 

In addition, Dixons Carphone said 1.2 million personal data records were hacked.

 

It admitted non-financial personal data, such as names, addresses or email addresses, was accessed but it again insisted that it had seen no evidence of any fraud at this stage.

 

The breach was currently being investigated by police, it said, while regulators had also been informed.
