It’s been reported that second hand electronics dealer CeX has been involved in a breach. The dealer has said that 2 million customers may have had their information stolen by hackers. Customers received emails alerting them about this breach, the email also said that their personal information may have been taken.

Information including first name, surname, address, phone number and email address has been breached by the hackers.
