Vision Direct says a hack attack has exposed thousands of its customers’ personal data including payment card numbers, expiry dates and CVV codes.
The contact lens retailer said anyone who had entered their details into its site between 3 and 8 November could be affected. It added that it had identified 16,300 people as being at risk.
