Adidas websites went offline after a security breach using an advanced hacking attack happened on November 3.
Adidas claimed it was mindful of a sophisticated cyber-attack on several of its websites on Thursday but said that it found no sufficient grounds to declare compromised customer data and still took them down to avoid further infractions.
In a published statement, Adidas said websites that went offline include adidas.com, adidas-group.com, micoach.com, reebok.com and several e-commerce stores in a move to undergo “thorough forensic review.”
Adidas also claimed putting up extra security measures after uncovering the malicious attack saying, “nothing is more important to us than the privacy and security of our consumers’ personal data.”
Despite the firm’s assurance from its initial investigation that it did not discover a smoking gun for security breach, it continues to swing open the doors of possibility that the cybercriminals were good at covering tracks.
A more detailed explanation to its customers would have calmed down some dubious minds concerning the incident.
Adidas has subsequently began to bring its websites back online.
