Online retailer CafePress, which specializes in custom T-shirts and merchandise, is reported to have suffered a data breach involving sensitive information of more than 23 million customers in February of 2019. According to HIBP (Have I Been Pwned), CafePress was hacked in February of 2019 and the personal information for 23,205,290 users was exposed including Email addresses, Names, Passwords, Phone numbers, and Physical addresses.

Sources have asked CafePress if they can comment as it doesn’t appear any notification emails or formal disclosures mentioning a breach has been acknowledged by CafePress. About 77 percent of the email addresses in the breach have shown up in the HIBP breach alerts.

Provided the reports of a breach are accurate, questions as to how the breach occurred are still unknown. Researchers mention that many of the exposed passwords were encoded in base64 SHA1 – a particularly weak encryption that security experts have criticized as being an outdated method.

Users who accessed CafePress through third-party applications such as Facebook and Amazon, however, did not have their passwords compromised.
