Information about credit card numbers, social security numbers and driver’s license were disclosed.
Specialists from Mercedes-Benz USA discovered a data breach that affected about a thousand customers. The company evaluated 1.6 million customer records, including customer names, addresses, email, phone numbers, and some information about purchased vehicles, to determine the extent of the problem.
The data breach on the cloud storage platform included credit card numbers, social security numbers, and driver’s license numbers for less than 1,000 Mercedes-Benz customers and potential buyers who injected confidential information on company and dealer websites between 2014 and 2017 Mercedez-Benz.
“No Mercedes-Benz system has been compromised as a result of this incident and we currently have no evidence that any Mercedes-Benz files were maliciously used,” the company said.
As noted by the company, the information was not available for search or indexing in a conventional search engine.
