The Gold Bullion Company Website Attacked

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

I just received this email from TheGoldBullion.co.uk and thought you may want to know:

" Dear Valued Customer,

I am writing to inform you that we suspect our website has been subjected to an online attack yesterday evening and the attackers may have unlawfully obtained personal customer data as a result. We would like to remind you that we do not store debit/credit card details which are processed through the SagePay and Barclaycard portal.

We are working closely with cyber specialists, law enforcement bodies and the Information Commissioner’s Office to establish the extent of any data breach and we will update you as soon as we can establish the full nature and extent of the incident.

Even though we do not store passwords in plain text if you use the same login email and password combination from your Gold Bullion Co. account on any other online platform please reset all of your passwords as soon as possible in order to safeguard the integrity of your other online accounts.

Follow this link for advice on setting robust 

Whilst our joint investigations are continuing, we will only accept orders on the website during office hours when the site is actively monitored by suitably qualified personnel. Therefore, our website will not be accessible outside of office hours whilst this work continues.

We are extremely sorry that this criminal behaviour has impacted our customers and apologise for the inconvenience that may be caused.

The Gold Bullion Team

Also received the same email and a second email explaining how they resolved the issue. I’ve only ever bought two empty coin tubes from them. I removed their details from my bank account. I’ve got numerous reputable bullion dealers who I buy from and won’t be doing any further business with them. I don’t have the time nor patience to deal with online companies whose security has been compromised by hackers. There are much better dealers around.
