Superdrug has revealed that hackers may have personal information of some of their Superdrug.com customers– including names, addresses, dates of birth and telephone numbers.

“The hacker shared a number of details with us to try and ‘prove’ he had customer information – we were then able to verify they were Superdrug customers from their email and log-in,” a Superdrug spokeswoman told the Independent.

Superdrug has advised its online customers to change their passwords and has also informed the police as well as the UK’s national fraud and cyber-crime arm, Action Fraud.
