Victim of data breach, Adecco warns its temporary workers

The French temporary agency Adecco was, in his own words, the victim of a “data extraction attempt.”

Its temporary workers and former temporary workers in recent days have received an email discovered by Le Parisien and posted by some of them on social media, in which the company reveals that some of their personal details are last names, first names, email addresses, social security numbers and bank details – “potentially leaked”.

“You have also worked there in the past, you should know that your documents are stored in a storage device (identity card, RIB, etc.). Hackers could have access to it, ”recalls one of the former employees on Twitter.

Adecco indicates that she “immediately took the necessary measures to correct this decision”, contacted the CNIL and filed a complaint. The company invites interested parties to inform their bank of the possible disclosure of their IBAN and to be vigilant against phishing attempts that may now take over.

Piracy will not be from yesterday. “On Tuesday, November 8, several testimonials appeared on social media reporting a deduction of the amount of 49.85 euros by a company Solfex France SASU, which we do not know and which does not belong to the Adecco group,” the company said in a statement. last month.

According to Le Parisien, “Therefore, this is the same data breach and the second wave of emails on this subject. But unlike the employees who were affected in early November, the leak of their bank details will not affect the last ones alerted. Adecco has also set up a dedicated telephone line to answer questions from victims.
