Data of several million Volkswagen and Audi customers leaked

06/11/2021

Volkswagen and Audi have been hit by a data breach that has exposed three million personal data records from the United States and Canada..

The problem stems from the leaking of user information by a third-party vendor contracted between 2014 and 2019. The data of owners or potential customers was used for marketing purposes, and ultimately stored in an unprotected database.
