Garmin Southern Africa (Garmin SA) has disclosed in a series of notifications sent to its customers that payment and sensitive personal information were stolen from orders placed on the shopping portal.

“We recently discovered theft of customer data from orders placed through (operated by Garmin South Africa) that compromised your personal data related to an order that you placed through the website,” said Jennifer Van Niekerk, South Africa Managing Director. The compromised data was limited to only Garmin’s South Africa site, and contained payment information, including the number, expiration date and CVV code for your payment card, along with your first and last name, physical address, phone number and email address.”

While the cause of the breach is not mentioned in the notification email to the impacted Garmin SA customers, there are signs that the portal was the victim of a Magecart group.
