    What you need to know

    • An “unauthorized third party” accessed Samsung’s US customer data at the end of July.
    • Samsung discovered the hack on August 4 but did not report it to affected customers until September 2.
    • Card data is stored and the customer’s SSN is not obtained, but contact information and personal demographics are.
    • Samsung encourages affected users to check their credit reports, although hackers won’t be able to influence it.

    Samsung has become the latest tech company to suffer a serious data breach, although thankfully for its US customers, the scale of the breach isn’t as serious as it could be.

    Samsung Security Feedback Center page (opens in a new tab) outlines the details of the breach: A hacker broke into Samsung’s data servers in the United States and accessed customer information in late July. Samsung discovered the breach in early August and took action to “secure affected systems”, hired a “leading external cybersecurity company” and contacted law enforcement. .
