What We Know So Far About the City Furniture Breach

News of the City Furniture breach comes from the company’s official filing with the Massachusetts Office of Consumer Affairs and Business Regulation. However, while Massachusetts requires companies to provide notice of a breach to affected consumers, the information the company must provide is very limited. Thus, all that is known is that certain consumer information in the company’s possession was possibly subject to unauthorized access.

Despite the lack of information provided in the letter, it is likely that the City Furniture data breach involved affected parties’ names, as well as one or more of the following:

  • Social Security numbers,
  • Driver’s license or state identification numbers, or
  • Financial account or credit/debit card information.
