National flower retailer, Bloom and Wild, has recently reported a security incident which led to the personal details of customers being passed on to an unauthorised third party. The incident is reported to have occurred between the 28th October 2020 and 9th November 2020 and the leaked details include customer names, email addresses, payment card numbers, expiry dates and security numbers.
At this stage, it is not clear now many people have been affected or how the breach has occurred. This is a national online company, so those affected by the breach are likely to be across the country, and not limited to one regional area.
How do I know if my data has been breached by Bloom and Wild?
Those affected by the breach may have already received an email from the retailer informing them that their details have been compromised. If you have purchased online with Bloom and Wild, we would advise you to check your emails for a communication from the company. At this time, we are investigating any further updates on the matter as they happen.
