Love, Bonito confirms data breach affecting online customers

Online-to-offline fashion label Love, Bonito has confirmed a data breach affected its e-commerce website briefly – but only a tiny fraction of customers were affected.

Company co-founder Rachel Lim admitted that malicious code had been incorporated into its site, which has since been removed. 

An estimated 3 per cent of Love, Bonito’s customers may have had personal information exposed during the hack, with a small number having had their financial data accessed.

“We have always been committed to providing our community with a safe shopping environment and sincerely apologise for this incident,” said Lim.

“It is therefore regrettable to discover a security incident involving our website,” read a statement on the firm’s Facebook page. “This incident was discovered 72 hours ago, which we immediately took steps to contain. 

“Some of our customers’ personal information may have been unfortunately exposed … For those affected by this incident, an email has been sent to you informing you on next steps.”

Singapore police will be making investigations into the incident with the assistance of the firm.
