Dell Technologies has sent notices to millions of customers warning that data including full names and physical addresses was stolen during a security incident.

The US technology giant did not provide any details on the breach beyond a brief statement mentioning "an incident" involving a Dell portal, which contains a database with limited types of customer information.

A brief notice sent to customers said the hacked database contained very basic customer data related to purchases from Dell.

Dell said an investigation has confirmed that data accessed include customer names, physical mailing addresses and information on Dell hardware and order information. The pilfered data also included order service tags, item description, dates of orders and customer warranty information.

Data breaches involving customer information can have serious consequences for both companies and individuals. Even if financial data is not directly exposed, personal details like names and addresses can be used for identity theft, phishing scams, and other malicious activities.

Companies are responsible for implementing robust cybersecurity measures and promptly disclosing any data breaches to affected customers. Transparency and clear communication are crucial in maintaining trust and allowing customers to take necessary precautions.
