Kiefer Aquatics is a specialty company that distributes and sells gear to swimmers around the country. The company has several of its own e-commerce stores, such as theliftguardstore.com and allamericanswim.com. The company suffered a serious data breach recently that may have exposed its online customers.
The Kiefer Holdings breach occurred when one person was able to infiltrate lifeguardstore.com and allamericanswim.com and obtain information from the order form as people were checking out. This gave the attacker access to credit and debit card information for customers of these sites. This information could be used in seriously harmful ways.
The attacker had access to the above-mentioned websites through the Kiefer Aquatics network of sites between February 6 and June 28, 2022. Throughout those many months, the person could have gathered purchase information for many different people.
The Kiefer Aquatics breach impacts customers that made purchases at Kiefer.com, allamericanswim.com, or thelifeguardstore.com. If you made purchases on any of those websites, you may be at risk and could be hurt by fraud. Consider canceling the card that was involved in making the purchase to protect yourself.
The Kiefer Aquatics breach impacted a small number of server files that enabled the attacker to gain access to order information. The files were only modified slightly, and that access gave the individual the ability to complete harmful purchases in the name of customers using the website.
