Advance Auto suffers data breach


ROANOKE, Va. Another company has become the victim of network intrusion; this time it is Advance Auto Parts, which reported on March 31 that an investigation revealed that data from 14 of its stores may have been impacted, potentially compromising customer financial information of up to 56,000 customers.

The company said it has started sending letters directly to the impacted customers whom it has been able to identify. Customers who purchased products in the 14 stores and who do not receive a letter can call a toll-free number to determine if they have been impacted.

“Safeguarding our customers’ confidential financial information is extremely important to Advance Auto Parts, and we take this responsibility very seriously,” said Darren Jackson, president and ceo.
