Atlantic Cigar security breach
 
Today I received a letter from Atlantic Cigar. Customer identification and credit card info has been stolen or breached.:na
Just a heads up for those who purchase from them.

I didn't get a warning email from them. It would not surprise me of a data breach but to be safe I would treat the email you got as a Phishing attempt and not respond to it he email. Changing passwords and other options are smart but I am pretty certain the credit information is encrypted on Atlantic but I could be wrong. Better safe then sorry.

It was not an email; it was a good old fashioned letter. I got one too. Data breach for sure. I never keep my credit card on file, and I never use a real birthdate ('cuz I will always be 39!:)), so I am keeping my fingers crossed that the most they get from my file is name and address (which is what you can get out of the phone book anyway).

Oh, wait, letter!!!! Wow, that is official. I assumed email and no emailed warnings but I will check the mail. Sounds like a new CC number will be necessary.

Thanks Dave. This was an actual letter. They're providing a year of credit monitoring, etc.
Just to be safe I'm gonna call my credit card provider and ask their advice.

I can't see how to change my password on Atlantics website. Bleh. Ok, credit watch going up and a new CC probably. Bleh but I have credit monitoring already as I lack faith in non-cigar smokers hahahaha. I will let the CC company know as well.

Thanks for the warning!!!!!!

It was their credit card processing service, Aptos, that was hacked - not their website. It never hurts to change passwords, but that's not where the problem occurred.

I got the letter yesterday, but haven't purchased anything from them in several years.
