The Danish Online Food supplier Nemlig.com have been experiencing a security breach and have recently had to send out emails to 5 000 of their customers, whose personal information has been compromised.

Worse is the fact that the security breach at Nemlig.com has been exposed for about three years.

This means that potentially 5 000 customers have had their personal information leaked. The leak is reported to the Danish Data Protection Agency.

Due to the security breach, unauthorised persons have had the opportunity to access the private information of all customers who have bought food at Nemlig.com from 2016 until 18 January 2019.

In an email to ISB, Nemlig.com declined to confirm the number of customers they currently have, but they have apparently only contacted 5 000 people per email whom Nemlig.com think have been affected by the security breach.

The email Nemlig.com wrote to their customers states: "Dear Customer, We are writing to you because we found a security breach in one of our IT systems in January 2019 that allowed unauthorised access to your name, address and purchase information."

Nemlig.com declares that the leaks have been reported to the Danish Data Protection Agency.

Nemlig.com further states that the online supermarket has no reason to believe that there are actually unauthorised persons who have taken advantage of the security breach and obtained access to the 5 000 customers' personal information.



We believe that information should be free and will therefore never put up a paywall.
