Hellman fell victim to a cyberattack, which was confirmed on December 9th and initially impacted all connections to their central data centre. While business operations have since started back up, there has been an increase in customers reporting fraudulent calls and mails attempting to scam them out of money. The company is still investigating what type of data was stolen during the attack and will keep updating their customers with further information as the situation unravels.
Customers are urged to make sure they are communicating with a verified Hellman employee before sharing information, and to be suspicious of any inbound calls or emails – particularly those regarding payment information or bank account details.
