“Vinomofo experienced a cybersecurity incident where an unauthorised third party unlawfully accessed our database on a testing platform that is not linked to our live Vinomofo website,” he said.

“Vinomofo does not hold identity or financial data such as passports, driver’s licences or credit cards/bank details. While no passwords, identity documents or financial information were accessed, the database includes other information about customers and members.”
