Data Security Updates

 

23/12/2020 - Data Security Update

 

Dear Customers,

 

Following our communication to you last night regarding the potential www.berettaaustralia.com.au data breach, 

we would like to provide some more information found in our investigation. 

 

Our website was not specifically targeted and was part of 23,618 websites compromised during November. More information

about this breach can be found here.

 

We can confirm that the passwords of each of our users was hashed, and therefore very difficult to use without decryption. Learn more about hashed passwords here

 

We store your password using a security feature that encrypts the password, which makes it so that anyone who accesses 
the data will not be able to decrypt the data without the proper key. 

 

We know that the targeted data was usernames and passwords for purposes of accessing social media accounts, therefore we are sure that physical addresses were not targeted and unlikely to have been collected. 

 

We still recommend changing your account password with Beretta Australia and any other account where you used

the same user name and password, including social media. 


Please note that we will be closed from 24/12/2020 - 04/01/2021 and will not be able to respond to any contact until we return on Monday, 4th of January, 2021.  

 

Please accept our deepest apologies for the worry and inconvenience that this has caused. 

 

Yours Sincerely,

The Beretta Australia Team

Use the Forgotten Password link on the Login page to be sent a randomly generated password if you don't have your current password.

 

2) Once logged in to your account, you will be taken to the My Account section. Click "Change Your Password" and set your new password. You can also access the Change Your Password section (once logged in) using the direct link below:

If your www.berettaaustralia.com.au email address and password combination is used elsewhere, we recommend you changing those passwords too. 

 

 

22/12/2020 - Data Security Update

 

Dear Customers,

 

We were notified of a potential data breach on the berettaaustralia.com.au website recently. Since being notified we have initiated an investigation and have found that the compromise occurred in a period believed to be in November 2020. The compromised data may include your password, therefore we recommend that you change your password immediately as per the steps above.

 

If your www.berettaaustralia.com.au email address and password combination is used elsewhere, we recommend you changing those passwords too. 

 

At this stage we have no reason to believe any financial details or information were compromised, as there is no financial data stored on our website. 

 

We take the protection of your personal information very seriously. We want to assure you that we have identified measures and have put these in place immediately to assure the increased security and safety of your account details. 

 

Should there be any other information pertinent to this issue, we will inform you immediately and endeavour to take all corrective actions. 

 

Please accept our deepest apologies for the worry and inconvenience that this has caused.

 

Yours Sincerely,

The Beretta Australia Team
