Customer data could have been lifted from bodybuilding.com

Bodybuilding.com, described as the internet’s biggest online store and forum for gym enthusiasts, has disclosed information of a cyber incident following unauthorised access to its systems which they became aware of in February.

In a statement on its website, it’s claimed hackers gained entry to the network a via phishing email sent in July last year. Details including customer names, email addresses, billing/shipping addresses, phone numbers and order history could have been accessed. But Bodybuilding.com says there’s no evidence to suggest the data has been misused.

The company is encouraging all users to reset passwords and will be automatically resetting passwords for those who don’t reset themselves by 12th June.

Guidance on how to deal with phishing emails is available on the NCSC website as well as tips to help secure yourself online.
