OnePlus says up to 40000 customers affected in credit card breach

OnePlus says up to 40000 customers affected in credit card breach

If you're someone who has entered your credit card information into the OnePlus website for any reason over the last several months, make sure to monitor your account for fraudulent charges or look into cancelling your card. OnePlus has sent out emails to users it believes may have been impacted after a malicious code was inserted into the company's payment page, created to sniff out credit card numbers.

"One of our systems was attacked, and a malicious script was injected into the payment page code to sniff out credit card info while it was being entered". The company says users who purchased items from its website between mid-November and January 11 stand at risk, though not if they used a credit card saved before that time or any of the PayPal-related payment options.

The most recent problem was a OnePlus credit card breach, which has since caused the company to shut down credit card payments for the online store. This includes those with their credit card information saved on the website, those that use the credit card through Paypal Holdings Inc (NASDAQ:PYPL) option and those that just simply use PayPal.

It would be easy to recommend prospective OnePlus customers buy the company's products somewhere else for the time being, but unfortunately OnePlus doesn't partner with any third-party retailers. The malicious script sent this data directly from the customer's browser, and has since been eliminated, according to the company.


OnePlus is still investigating if the malicious script was loaded onto its servers remotely or if someone had physical access to the machine. Credit card payments are still suspended, but PayPal can still be used for purchases.

OnePlus does a pretty decent job in letting people know what happened in its latest blog update. You can contact the OnePlus support team if you need further assistance.

"We are deeply sorry to announce that we have indeed been attacked, and up to 40k users at oneplus.net may be affected by the incident".

OnePlus is already in the process of getting in touch with all the potentially affected customers, and is working with the local authorities to address the incident better. As of now, the company has removed the credit card payment on its portal.
