Personal Data From Hundreds Of Thousands Tommy Hilfiger Japan Customers Exposed Online (Breaches and Incidents)

A security vulnerability discovered on the Tommy Hilfiger Japan website resulted in the personal information of tens of thousands of customers being exposed online for anyone to see. The issue was first discovered by Noam Rotem and Ran L, two researchers from security firm Safety Detective, and has since been addressed by Tommy Hilfiger Japan and parent company PVH Corp. The researchers at Safety Detective explained that by using a person's contact information and transaction history, an attacker may be able to reach a customer via phone or email posing as a Tommy Hilfiger employee and ask for other information like credit card numbers. The company's representatives were put in contact with the researchers at Safety Detective, and the issue was escalated to PVH Corp.—one of the largest fashion companies in the world and the parent company of Tommy Hilfiger, Calvin Klein, IZOD and others. A representative for PVH Corp. disclosed that the issue stemmed from a third-party operator that manages the Tommy Hilfiger Japan website and has since been fixed. The researchers at Safety Detective said the company "acted quickly" to address the issues.
