At the time, Ledger believed that only 9.500 of its customers had been affected. The information that was leaked at that time included the email addresses as well as the name and surname of the customers, the mailing address, the phone number and information about products that they had ordered. However, in December 2020, it was revealed that 272.000 names, postal addresses and telephone numbers were stolen during the data breach.
The company found out when some of these files were published in RaidForums, a market for the sale and sharing of compromised information.
