BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) -- Wegmans revealed that back in April databases they use to store personal information were “inadvertently left open to potential outside access.”
Names, addresses, and phone numbers, birth dates, Shoppers Club numbers, as well as e-mail addresses and passwords for access to Wegmans.com accounts were exposed in the data breach.
Wegmans released a statement outlining what happened and how they have resolved the issue. They said they "worked with leading outside experts to investigate the matter" and have since "corrected configurations and secured all affected information."
Wegmans recommended--for extra precaution-- for customers to change their password to their website along with other websites that you have the same password.
In this case, the supermarket chain assured credit card numbers and social security numbers were protected.
