Samsung hit with class action lawsuit following data breach | Cyber Security Hub – Cyber Security Hub

Samsung has been hit with a class action lawsuit following its data breach in July of this year which saw the company’s US servers hacked and customer data accessed.
Following the breach, Samsung confirmed on August 4 that “name, contact and demographic information, date of birth and product registration information” may have been accessed by the hackers.
The lawsuit alleges that Samsung violated privacy and contract laws and was filed with the US District Court for Nevada on September 6 by Shelby Harmer “on behalf of Samsung’s customers whose personally identifiable information was stolen by cybercriminals”.
It alleges that Samsung failed to notify affected parties in a timely manner, as well as failing to safeguard customer’s personal and identifying information. The lawsuit also alleges that Harmer, and all others who were affected by the breach “are currently at a very high risk of misuse of their private information”.
Harmer is suing Samsung for breach of contract, negligence and invasion of privacy, and is seeking certification of the class action lawsuit, a jury trial and damages, costs and fees.
At the time of writing, Samsung has not commented publicly on the lawsuit.
