Butlin’s has admitted that it has suffered a data breach that may have exposed details of 34,000 guests.
Personal information contained within the records accessed by hackers includes names, booking reference numbers, arrival dates, home addresses, email addresses, and telephone numbers.
The company has said that no financial information has been compromised, and it will be contacting affected guests in the next few days.
The holiday camp company says that the hackers managed to gain access to its data after successfully phishing an employee via email.
Butlin’s has set up an email address for concerned customers to contact if they have any questions: firstname.lastname@example.org
