The stolen data is rather low-sensitivity, but could lead to identity theft scams.

On May 9, 2024, the computer manufacturer, Dell, informed its customers that it had been the victim of a data leak. “We are currently investigating an incident involving a Dell portal, which contained a database with limited types of information on customers, tied to purchases made with Dell. We do not believe there are any significant risks for our customers, given the nature of the information,” reads the email.

The data contains customer names, mailing addresses and information on the Dell equipment purchased, including serial numbers. At the same time, a hacker put the data of 49 million Dell customers up for sale on a cybercriminal forum. He claims to have the “full names, addresses, serial numbers as well as customer numbers” of anyone who bought a Dell product between 2017 and 2024. 

The manufacturer declined to comment on these claims. It should be noted that, while the stolen data is not sensitive, an attacker could use it to impersonate Dell in order to extract more critical data.
