Cebuana Lhuillier, a micro loan and remittance services provider, said on Saturday that the data of 900,000 clients had been accessed without authorization. Authorities have already been alerted and will be conducting an investigation.
The firm said that some information of the clients that were affected in the breach were birthdays, addresses and sources of income.
“It’s just a very small portion of our clientele. The main server containing all clients of Cebuana Lhuillier remains protected and uncompromised”, said Richard Villaseran, the company’s corporate communications division head.
