The owner of the parking app RingGo, Easypark, has announced it has been the victim of a data breach, but that non-sensitive customer data was affected.
It says it discovered the hack on 10 December and took “swift measures” to stop the attack, made sure operations continued as usual, notified the authorities and involved external security experts to work alongside its security team to ensure effective security and privacy measures are in place.
It says some contact information, such as name, phone number, physical address, and/or email address were accessed but that payment data was incomplete so could not be used for any transactions.
It has urged customers to be on the look-out for phishing scams, where fraudsters use customer details to send them convincing-looking emails or text messages in an attempt to scam them.
