Customer details leaked from cosmetics company

The information of about 500,000 customers has been leaked from Tony Moly’s website, according to the local cosmetics brand yesterday.

Tony Moly, while expressing an apology, stated on its website that some customer data, including user IDs, names, cell phone numbers, passwords and email addresses, were leaked in a hacking incident last Friday.

But it also noted that information related to payment, such as registration or bank account numbers, has not been disclosed. “We have requested a related investigative body to look into the case to find the suspect,” the company stated. “We will also put in efforts with related government authorities so that the leaked data does not circulate in the market or get misused.”

Information leaks have been a major issue since the beginning of the year.
