Retailer WH Smith cancels Funky Pigeon online orders after cyber incident



(Reuters) – The British retailer WH Smith PLC said on Tuesday that they have canceled orders from their online greeting card and gift shop Funky Pigeon after a cyber security incident last week.

WH Smith, who sells books, stationery and other items at his travel center stores, said no customer payment data with Funky Pigeon was compromised due to the April 14 incident.

“We are currently investigating the extent to which personal information, specific names, addresses, email addresses and personal card and gift designs have been obtained,” said WH Smith and Funky Pigeon.

“We are also writing to all customers over the past 12 months to inform them of these issues,”

; said Funky Pigeon.

The incident comes amid heightened scrutiny of appropriate defenses against cyberattacks, particularly against Western financial institutions, in the wake of rising geopolitical tensions following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine in February.

The company also said that the incident would not have a significant impact on the Group’s financial position, based on a current analysis.
