Adidas sites hacked
Company says no evidence that consumer data was stolen
German sportswear maker Adidas has taken its websites offline following what it has called a ‘sophisticated, criminal cyber-attack', according to the BBC.
Company officials said they had no evidence that consumer data had been compromised in the attack, but Adidas took down the affected sites to protect users.
Adidas discovered the attack on 3rd November and has taken steps to put in place additional data security measures. The company is now beginning to relaunch the websites.
"Nothing is more important to us than the privacy and security of our consumers' personal data," Adidas said in a statement. "We appreciate your understanding and patience during this time".
The news follows a report by security experts that 29 chemicals firms comes had been targeted by a series of cyber-attacks less than a week ago.
