Guidecraft is a major online retailer that sells a wide range of craft and household items. The company processes thousands of orders annually and is a major retailer that may have exposed buyers to major data loss issues recently.
Guidecraft had two major issues that led to data breaches. An individual was able to break into the company's files and obtain information, and the company also didn't properly secure credit card purchase information. These two issues together could have exposed a large number of people.
The first data breach occurred between September 21, 2021, and December 30, 2022. During that time, an unknown attacker was able to get into the network and take customer data. The second issue occurred between February 7 and February 8, 2023, when a vendor potentially made credit card purchase information available.
The Guidecraft breach impacts Guidecraft customers that made purchases through the website. If you entrusted your information to the company, you might have been exposed to the breach. Your information could be used in phishing attacks and also to complete fraudulent purchases.
There is no Guidecraft file count available in relation to the breaches. We only know that thousands of files and documents were available on the network, and the attacker could have accessed many of them. The credit card information breach made many card details available and exposed a large number of purchasers.
