OnePlus Customers' Credit Card Details Stolen

OnePlus Customers' Credit Card Details Stolen

The company recommends that you check your credit card statements and alert your bank to any irregular charges which will help you initiate a chargeback. Now OnePlus says that up to 40,000 of its customers have indeed been affected by a credit card breach on their website. Today we're getting the first results from that investigation, and things aren't looking good for OnePlus or its users.

Now, 40,000 people certainly sounds like a big number, and in this day and age, it's higher than the figure of online customers who should fear for their e-safety by 40,000. Despite the fact that OnePlus said earlier that customers' payment data is "never processed or saved" on its site, this script was able to lift everything - card numbers, security codes, and expiration dates - right from the text fields before checkout. However, the forum post confirms that the severity and scale of the problem is far larger than initially thought, as the breach may have affected anyone who input credit card information on OnePlus' website from as far back as mid-November 2017 a year ago. For the time being, credit card payments remain disabled, the infected server is quarantined, and "all relevant system structures" are "reinforced".

Users who paid via the "Credit Card via PayPal" method should NOT be affected.

The most recent problem was a OnePlus credit card breach, which has since caused the company to shut down credit card payments for the online store.

Produced by Deepshika Deshmukh, Jackky Bhagnani , the film is all set to hit the screens on February 16, the Valentine week. He has quite a few projects lined up that are about to give him his due credit in the industry.

Last week, we started hearing word of a potential security breach over at OnePlus.

OnePlus says that if you have purchased something from their online store to keep an eye out for any suspicious activity on your statements. You're nearly certainly off the hook for any fraudulent use as long as you report what you've seen in a reasonable timeframe. If you decide to buy something, it's best to be safe and use PayPal, as it doesn't require you to enter any sensitive information that would be potentially intercepted before it reaches OnePlus' servers.

Going forward, the OEM wants to avoid similar attacks by implementing a more secure credit card payment method, as well as conducting an in-depth security audit.
