Acer online store has recently been hacked and the breach has exposed the credit card details of users accessing the website over the past 12 months.

Acer has sent a letter informing all users of its online store in the US warning that their personal records were drawn off from its store by crooks between May 12, 2015 and April 28, 2016.

The lost data includes customer names, addresses, card numbers, and three-digit security verification codes on the backs of the cards. Acer did not say how many customers had their details swiped.

"Based on our records, we have determined that your information may have been affected, potentially including your name, address, card number ending in [insert], expiration date and three-digit security codes. We do not collect Social Security numbers, and we have not identified evidence indicating that password or login credentials were affected," the letter reads.

Acer has urged its customers who suspect their card numbers being used for fraudulent charges to file reports with the police.

"If you suspect that you are a victim of identity theft or fraud, you have the right to file a police report. In addition, you may contact your State Attorney General’s office or the US Federal Trade Commission to learn about steps you can take to protect yourself against identity theft”, said the letter from Acer.
