Callaway is one of the leading golf brands in the world and has partnered with Topgolf to deliver an entertaining golfing experience in venues across the United States and in other areas of the world. Callaway itself manages retail outlets under several different brands and operates online stores handling orders from millions of individuals annually. The company was the recent victim of a data breach, putting many of its customers at risk.
We don't have specifics about the Callaway data breach, but we know there was an IT mistake made that compromised over 1 million accounts related to Callaway online retailers. The mistake likely created a vulnerability that enabled outside users to get access to files and customer data. It's unclear if the vulnerable data was exploited in any way.
The Callaway data breach started on August 1 and lasted until August 16, 2023. During that period a huge number of accounts were impacted for many different online retailers related to Callaway.
Over 1 million individuals were affected by this Callaway data breach. Customers using online retailer websites for Callaway, Odyssey, Callaway Preowned, and Ogio websites were affected. The company asked customers to change their passwords after the breach was discovered and put new security measures in place for additional protection for the individuals involved.
We don't know the total number of files impacted by the Callaway data breach. We do know that a huge number of the company's customers were affected by the breach, though.
