The Shoprite Group – which offers global money transfers to 100 different countries – has warned of a suspected data “compromise”, saying that customers who did money transfers to and within Eswatini and within Namibia and Zambia may be affected. Fin24 quotes the company as saying that the data compromise included names and identity numbers, but no financial information or bank account numbers, and that it was not aware of any misuse or publication of customer data that may have been acquired. Shoprite warned though that the data may still be used by the “unauthorised party” and urged customers not to disclose personal information such as passwords and PINs when asked to do so by anyone via telephone, SMS, or email.
