Fashion retailer Guess is notifying affected customers of a data breach following a February ransomware attack that led to data theft. The disclosure states that data including “Social Security numbers, driver’s license numbers, passport numbers and/or financial account numbers may have been accessed or acquired.” The company did not disclose how many individuals accounts were compromised, but the office of Maine’s Attorney General shows that the attack affected over 1,300 people.

Though the company did not report who had claimed responsibility for the attack, DataBreaches.net reported in April that the DarkSide ransomware gang had listed Guess on their data leak site, claiming to have stolen over 200 GB of data from the retailer. Experts with Gurucul and Shared Assessments offer perspective.
