Adidas discovered that an unauthorized party had gained access to its servers and stolen data late last month. The company began informing customers yesterday and it’s still investigating the full extent of this hack. The company is of the view that only usernames, encrypted passwords, and contact information of a few million customers have been leaked.

It does mention that no health data and credit card details were leaked. Since contact details were leaked, those who purchased products from the company’s U.S. website will likely be contacted by the company so that they can be informed about this hack.

“Adidas immediately began taking steps to determine the scope of the issue and to alert relevant consumers. Adidas is working with leading data security firms and law enforcement authorities to investigate the issue,” the company said in a statement.

It would be best to change the password for your Adidas account if you have made a purchase from its U.S. password and if you use the same password elsewhere, it would be best to change that as well.
