Jordan Whitehead v. Advance Stores Company Inc.,Case No. 5:16-cv-250-Orl-37PRL District Court for the Middle District of Florida.
On March 7, 2016, ASC was the victim of a phishing attack, resulting in the disclosure of personally identifiable information (“PII”) concerning current and former ASC employees. Specifically, an outside third party obtained unauthorized access to employee PII through a phishing-type attack by posing as an ASC employee. The third party convinced an ASC employee to provide a file containing information about certain individuals who worked for ASC during 2015. Plaintiffs claim that ASC did not adequately protect their personal information and that they were injured as a result of the ASC Phishing Attack. ASC denies any wrongdoing, and no court or other entity has made any judgment or other determination of any wrongdoing or that the law has been violated.
