DiversiTech Corporation suffered a data breach that the company's public relations specialists are euphemistically referring to as a data privacy event. However, DiversiTech has not provided additional details about how the hack was performed. Nor has the company specified an exact date when the breach occurred. Here's what we know about the breach as of now.
Hackers infiltrated a company email account. The email account provided access to customer information, files, downloads, and other sensitive data about business operations, sales, etc. DiversiTech representatives noted an issue with its servers that led to the exposure of different data types.
The exact date of the breach is unknown, but it was recognized by DiversiTech in June 2022.
The breach impacts DiversiTech customers. Hackers stole customers' full names and social security numbers.
DiversiTech did not reveal the specific number of files accessed in the breach. The company makes components for HVAC units, yet its customer base extends beyond the DiversiTech product line. DiversiTech customers also include customers who purchased products from the company's subsidiaries, such as Alltemp Product Company, Pump House, and Morris products. Such customers are encouraged to monitor the situation, including potential legal action and alterations to personal credit reports that signify identity theft.
