For the second time in two years, OnePlus has been the victim of an unauthorized theft by an “unlicensed party” and customer names, email addresses and shipping addresses can now be in the public domain.
OnePlus says that payment information and passwords are secure and not exposed to attacks, and a third party has not accessed any accounts.
“We take immediate steps to stop hacking and increase security,” OnePlus said in an email to affected customers. “At this time, we are working with the relevant authorities to further investigate this incident and protect your data.
If an email does not reach your inbox, you may assume that your account information has not been exposed, but as always, prevention is better than cure.
If you have been dealing with WanPlus in the past, it is important to monitor the phishing efforts that are sent to you in the future; Those emails will direct you to a fraudulent website to obtain financial information or other confidential information. Details
These phishing emails seem genuine, as scammers can now have their name, email address and shipping address. Always check where you send email links and keep your browser software updated to minimize the risk of getting caught.
“OnePlus will never ask for your passwords. Any financial information should only be provided through the OnePlus website or one of our partner’s secure payment pages if you buy the product,” OnePlus said.
In response to the violation, OnePlus partnered with a “world-renowned security platform” to launch a troubleshooting program. For more information about the incident, go to the official frequently asked questions.
