JD Wetherspoon website hacked

Customers who purchased Wetherspoon vouchers online before August 2014, credit/debit card information was stolen. For the other 656,723 customers, the database contained the name of the customer, the date of birth, the email address and the phone number. 

At 5.45pm on the 2nd December the security specialists informed JD Wetherspoon that the customer database related to the old website was breached (or hacked) between 15th and 17th June 2015. 
This website has since been replaced in its entirety.

The Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO), which regulates data protection, has been notified of the breach today.
