British pub chain JD Wetherspoon has suffered a leak of its customer details affecting more than 650,000 customers.
This is four times the number of customers hacked in the TalkTalk breach. Wetherspoon said credit and debit card data losses were limited to 100 customers who lost only the last four digits of their card numbers.
The company said, “These credit or debit card details cannot be used on their own for fraudulent purposes, because the first 12 digits and the security number on the reverse of the card were not stored on the database.”
According to a statement from the company, customers who signed up to receive Wetherspoon’s newsletter, registered with Sky’s The Cloud to use Wi-Fi in its pubs, submitted a ‘contact us’ form on the website or bought vouchers online before August 2014 were affected.
