Hackers target Dixons Carphone customer data.

Retailer Dixons Carphone has become the latest victim of a cyber attack after revealing 5.9 million customer bank card details and 1.2 million personal data records were hacked.

The group said that, while 5.8 million of the payment cards targeted were protected by chip and pin, around 105,000 non-EU cards without chip and pin protection were compromised.

Dixons Carphone said relevant card companies had been notified, but added that there was no evidence of fraud on the cards as a result of the incident.

It added that its investigation had also found that hackers accessed non-financial personal data – such as name, address or email details – for 1.2 million customer records.

The group is contacting all those affected, but sought to assure customers it had no evidence that this had resulted in fraud at this stage.
