The Russian office of the Swedish cosmetics company Oriflame suffered a series of cyberattacks, after which passport scans of 1.3 million Russian customers entered the network.

The publication reports that as a result, passport data were put up for sale on the hacking forum RaidForums.

“Passport scans of not only Russians, but also clients of the company from Asia and the CIS got into the network,” the publication clarifies.

Oriflame confirmed the fact of the cyber attack, which led to unauthorized access to the company’s information systems. At the same time, they assured that the numbers of bank accounts, telephone numbers, passwords and commercial transactions of users were not affected by the attack.

Alexander Dvoryansky, director of strategic communications at Infosecurity a Softline Company, told reporters that the attack was carried out from another country. According to him, the leak could have occurred from a backup copy of the file store.

“The company probably refused to buy the data from the attackers, so now they are made public,” said Ashot Hovhannisyan, founder of the DLBI data leak intelligence service.

Experts warn that attackers can use the passport data of the company’s customers who got into the network to apply for microloans, SIM cards, registration in online services or phone fraud.

It is noted that the leak of Oriflame is not the first among companies developing network marketing. In 2020, data from 19 million Avon customers and employees, including names, telephone numbers, dates of birth, e-mails and addresses, became publicly available.
