Wonga data breach puts up to 245,000 UK current and former customers at risk

Controversial short-term loan firm Wonga has some bad news for its current and former customers:

We believe there may have been illegal and unauthorised access to the personal data of some of our customers.

We are urgently working to establish further details and contacting those who we know have been impacted. The information may have included one or more of the following: name, e-mail address, home address, phone number, the last four digits of your card number (but not the whole number) and/or your bank account number and sort code.

We do not believe your Wonga account password was compromised and believe your account should be secure, however if you are concerned you should change your account password. We also recommend that you look out for any unusual activity across any bank accounts and online portals.
