A customer of Blaze Solutions accessed the lists of consumers buying from partnering companies working with Blaze Solutions. The consumer information was stolen for promotion purposes presumably, but there is a level of uncertainty surrounding the incident. Blaze Solutions made it much more difficult to access consumer information after the breach occurred, protecting future consumers in a way that the originals were not.
The Blaze Solutions breach occurred around December 29, 2021. It was around that time that the former customer accessed confidential data. The data was taken all at once and kept for future use.
This Blaze data breach impacts a list of consumers that work with companies relying on Blaze Solutions for their data processing. These customers may have had their information collected by the unlisted company for promotional purposes. No purchase information is known to have been leaked, but the company could still contact each of the individuals that have been exposed.
Thousands of customers had their information leaked to the company during the data breach. Any of the customers could have their data exposed and used for promotional purposes.
