fordpartsuk - security breach

Recommended Posts

Just a heads up - fordpartsuk has had their customer lists breached. I'd recommend anyone with an account with them reset the password immediately, and if you use the same password elsewhere, reset that too. Keep an eye out on any cards you may have used with them, I've no idea if whoever is now sending spam to fordparts customers also has card details. You'll probably be receiving phishing emails - don't fall for them. 

Breach happened in late may and they haven't cared to notify any customers despite the breach being reported to them, so I don't think I'll be using them again if I can avoid it.

Bit late with that info.

Thought I'd give them a chance to do the right thing themselves before publicising it -- but they haven't despite me chasing them several times via email.

Is there already a post about this?

Not that ive seen but any damage will have already been done. How do you know there was a breach?

I have my email set up with address delimiters - e.g. I could have an email address like fordownersclub+emailaddress@email.com - so if I get spam at the fordownersclub address, I know that was the source of the breach.  

I've been getting spam at a fordparts delimiter address and also at another email I used previously at fordparts, so I am certain they've been breached.
