It’s the last month of the year, but probably not the last data breach report.
Nissan Canada revealed on Thursday that the personal information of some customers may have been compromised as a result of a data breach discovered by the company on 11th December.
The incident affects individuals who have financed their vehicles through Nissan Canada Finance (NCF) and INFINITI Financial Services Canada. Nissan is notifying all 1.13 million current and past customers.
The attacker could have stolen names, addresses, vehicle details, vehicle identification numbers (VINs), credit scores, loan amounts, and information on monthly payments. Nissan Canada says the incident does not appear to involve payment card information.
This is not the first time Nissan has been targeted by hackers. Back in 2012, the company reported finding malware on its global information systems network. Last year, the company was forced to shut down its global websites due to a cyberattack.
