We recently got hold of a piece of mail bearing bad news from the edgy
boundary-pushing boutique Opening Ceremony stating that "a hacker placed
malicious software on our website."
The letter -- dated May 4 and signed by Carol Lim, CEO and co-founder of the
company -- says that the incident in question presumably took place on February
16. While the company took security precautions and removed the questionable
software after the breach was discovered on March 21, it was more than enough
time for the criminals to extract customers’ private information.
"Unfortunately, the hacker may have accessed the names, addresses,
and credit card information of customers who purchased an item on
our website during this period," reads part of the letter.
Opening Ceremony is currently working with data breach prevention and response
specialist ID Experts to field questions and concerns from customers who may
have been affected. ID Experts can be contacted at 866-660-8617.
