Data for 1.1 million Lazada accounts exposed

According to the details on the accident made official, the responsibility would be attributed to a database managed by RedMart, a division of the group that deals with the marketing of food. An archive containing data updated to 18 months ago. Below, in translated form, is the brief statement of a spokesperson for the company entrusted to the editorial team of Reuters.

The information of users who have been accessed illegally include names, telephone numbers, emails, residential addresses, encrypted passwords and partial credit card numbers.

After discovering what happened, Lazada says she immediately went to work in order to block access to the database, communicating to interested users the display of information. As always happens in these cases, there is a risk for them of ending up in the crosshairs of cybercriminals with targeted phishing campaigns.

Founded in 2011 by the German Rocket Internet, the company passed under the control of Alibaba. In some Asian countries such as Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam it is among the main players in the e-commerce sector.
