"According to an initial survey conducted, the data leaked included contact details, Usernames and encrypted passwords," a company spokesman said, adding that there is no evidence that credit card information has leaked. Adidas announced that research continues as it is entrusted to authorities and security firms.

While the number of leaked accounts has not yet been reported, news pages refer to "a few million" affected accounts.

During the same day, ironically, the company recorded a remarkable increase in its stock of 2%.

Adidas is the second colossal corporation that announces a violation this week after Ticketmaster announced whether such a event was on June 4th 27. Infringement of Ticketmaster affected 5% of service users, who were mainly international users. The breach was through infected JavaScript code that came from a third company, which provided if a live chat widget on the Payment page.

The target seems to have become the company of many kinds of attacks, as a few months ago mentioned a very well made phishing campaign against Adidas, which promised free products. Instead, users were at repeated charges, and of course without the free promising products.
