Dymocks Booksellers suffers data breach impacting 836k customers

Dymocks Booksellers is warning customers their personal information was exposed in a data breach after the company’s database was shared on hacking forums.

The company was informed that its customer data was stolen on September 6th, 2023, by Troy Hunt, the creator of the data breach notification service ‘Have I Been Pwned’, after a threat actor released it on a hacking forum.

Troy Hunt reports that Dymocks customer data has been circulated in various Telegram channels and hacking forums since at least June 2023.

Finally, as this data was essentially released for free, Dymocks customers should be on the lookout for emails asking for a credit card or login information, as it could be targeted phishing scams resulting from this data breach.
