A preliminary investigation found the leaked data includes contact information, usernames and encrypted passwords, the company said in a statement.

Only consumers who made purchases through adidas.com/US are thought to be affected. Orbitz had announced a breach that exposed around 880,000 credit cards while Panera left millions of its customers' records exposed on its site.

The information breach included usernames, contact information, and encrypted passwords. This week, Adidas became the latest company to suffer a large-scale data breach, joining more than a dozen other corporations with the same problem in the previous year and a half.

The best most can hope for is that their accounts weren't compromised or that they can secure them before they are. adidas is the latest company to announce a major data breach and it affects millions of United States consumers.

"On June 26, Adidas became aware that an unauthorized party claims to have acquired limited data associated with certain Adidas customers", the company said. The brand says it's now working alongside "leading data security firms and law enforcement authorities" to get to the bottom of it.

Well, Adidas is in the process of conducting a forensic review and is alerting customers it believes could be affected.

"Adidas is committed to the privacy and security of its consumers' personal data", the company's statement read.

Sports brand and trainer maker Adidas has suffered a data breach that may have spilled the personal information of potentially millions of its customers. "Adidas immediately began taking steps to determine the scope of the issue and to alert relevant customers".
