Major UK Retailer Suffers Security Breach, 2 Million Customers "Potentially" Affected

CEX suffers security breach that may affect up to two million customers
Second-hand United Kingdom technology retailer CeX has warned that the personal details of two million of its customers may have been accessed by hackers. I think so. Personal information like that which has been exposed by this security breach could be exploited by criminals.
United Kingdom pre-owned media chain CEX, known both for its role in the United Kingdom second-hand market and the fact its name is pronounced "sex", has apparently fallen victim to a large scale online data security data breach.
CeX said it was working with relevant authorities and law enforcement with their investigation of the cyberattack. There is also a select number of stores in the US.
The company said the stolen data included customers' names, addresses, email addresses, phone numbers and some old credit card information.
Up to two million online customers of CeX at at risk from attackers - but no information of in-store customers has been compromised.
"As such, as a precautionary measure, we advise customers to change their password across other services where they may have re-used their WeBuy website password", the retailer said.
As reported by the BBC, Cex is calling it a "sophisticated breach" stressing that this affects online account holders, while clarifying that in-store data has not been affected.
If you have used the CEX website, have a webuy online account, and use the same password elsewhere, it's definitely advised that you do change all similar passwords.
This is on top of what CeX stresses was always a robust security system, which it says was continually updated. In an email to customers this morning, the retailer said it was investigating the breach "as a priority" and promised it was "taking a number of measures to prevent this from happening again". "Together we have implemented additional advanced measures of security to prevent this from happening again".
