Weld My Ride is a welding supply store that sells a variety of welding components and equipment to customers online. The company deals with thousands of customers annually, and some of those customers could have had their data exposed in a recent breach.
The Weld My Ride data breach occurred when one or more people inserted malicious code into the e-commerce platform managed by Welding Supplies from IOC, the company managing the e-commerce solution for itself and Weld My Ride. The attack could have exposed Weld My Ride customers to serious data loss.
The malicious code impacting the Weld My Ride website was in place between September 25, 2022, and February 27, 2023. During this five-month period, a large amount of customer data was accessible, and many customers could have been put at risk of identity theft issues as a result.
The Weld My Rid breach impacts customers of the company's website purchasing welding supplies and related equipment. If you bought supplies during the period mentioned above, some of your information may have been accessed by attackers looking to gather user data. It's unclear if you were actually exposed by the breach, but you should take steps to protect yourself. Monitor your credit closely and consider putting a freeze on your credit if that option is available to you for additional protection.
The attackers didn't have access to many Weld My Ride files but did have access to data from a large number of customers using the website to make purchases. This is why a significant number of people could have been impacted by the breach.
