Artfire Privacy Breach

**Not GlitterSniffer Cosmetics related.**
If you have shopped on Artfire you may want to read this.

On Friday night there was a glitch on Artfire that prepopulated the wrong information at checkout. The information that populated was name, address and email address, but the information was not for the customer chacking out. Instead it was for an entirely different customer. The blog linked above tells of one Artfire users experience and Artfire and Artfire Artisans reactions to the breach.

Artfire has stated that no financial information was released, that the issue appears to be resolved, and that they will be contacting affected customers via email in the coming days. The rough estimate of affected customers sits at 100 at this time. Artfire may be contacted via email.

I am working on a follow up post regarding the situation, including other affected customers/shops, complaints filed with the FTC,  and further information regarding privacy, which I hope to have vetted and posted on Monday.
