Suspected Data Breach at Dkhoon Emirates Impacts 1.1 Million Customers


Dkhoon Emirates Data Breach Exposes Sensitive Customer Information

Dkhoon Emirates, a popular fragrance brand known for its collaborations with prominent figures in the industry, has recently been targeted in a major data breach. The cybercriminal responsible, going by the alias Ddarknotevil, has claimed credit for the attack and is reportedly selling the compromised customer databases on the dark web.

The breach has potentially exposed personal information from over 1.1 million customer records, including sensitive data such as complete identities, phone numbers, email addresses, and physical addresses. The cybercriminal is demanding $4,800 for the data, with transactions limited to cryptocurrencies like XMR and BTC.

If no buyers are found, Ddarknotevil has threatened to release the information publicly, putting Dkhoon Emirates users at risk of phishing attacks. The brand has not yet responded to requests for comment on the breach, leaving the accusations unsubstantiated.

This cyberattack on Dkhoon Emirates is part of a concerning trend targeting fashion and lifestyle brands. Similar incidents have occurred in the past, such as the hack on Estée Lauder Companies, which forced the company to take down parts of its network to prevent further data theft.

The threat actor behind the Dkhoon Emirates breach has a history of involvement in cyberattacks, including a previous incident affecting users of cloud solutions provider Okta. Despite claims of prior breaches, further investigation revealed inconsistencies in the allegations.

As the situation unfolds, users are advised to remain vigilant and cautious of potential security threats. The Cyber Express will continue to monitor the situation and provide updates as more information becomes available.
