Home Chef confirms breach after 8 million user records are found on the dark web.
Meal delivery service Home Chef has confirmed a data breach, two weeks after a hacker listed a database of 8 million customer records on a dark web marketplace. The Chicago-based company said customer names, email addresses, phone numbers, encrypted passwords, mailing addresses, and last four digits of its customers’ credit card numbers were taken in the breach. Home Chef will be reaching out to affected customers via email. And the company is taking action to strengthen information security defenses to prevent similar incidents from happening in the future.
Reset your password for the Home Chef portal and mobile app, monitor your account for suspicious activity, and look for a notification from Home Chef about whether you were impacted by the breach.
