Hackers target Pro-Bolt website

Hackers have compromised the website of Pro-Bolt and the Tewkesbury-based company is advising customers to change their passwords. The supplier of aluminium, stainless steel and titanium nuts, bolts and fasteners says it does not store credit card and Paypal details so this data is safe.

In a statement, Pro-Bolt director Louisa Harker says: “At Pro-Bolt we greatly value your business and treat your data protection and security with utmost importance. Pro-Bolt is aware of unauthorised access to our web-based system that may have exposed some customer information. We do not store credit card and paypal information, so this data has not been compromised.

“Customer account passwords are encrypted however as a precaution we ask all Pro-Bolt website account registered customers to change their passwords. Should this same password be used across other account types we recommend that these are also changed.

“As a global market-place, nothing is more important to Pro-Bolt than the trust our customers place with us to keep their data secure. We regret any inconvenience or concern that this situation may cause you. We know our customers and partners have high expectations of us, and we are committed to ensuring a safe and secure online experience for you on any connected device.

“We are working to aggressively investigate this matter and should you have any questions please contact me either via email [email protected] or call me on 01684 851940.”
