Fintech startup Revolut, which is valued at more than $33 billion, has confirmed it was hit by a cyberattack that allowed hackers to access the personal details of tens of thousands of customers.

The company did not specify the exact number of customers affected. Revolut spokesperson Michael Bodansky told TechCrunch that an “unauthorized third party obtained access to the details of a small percentage (0.16%) of our customers for a short period of time.” The company currently has over 20 million clients which translates into about 32,000 customers affected. However, according to other available data over 50,000 clients were targeted.

We immediately identified and isolated the attack to effectively limit its impact and have contacted those customers affected. Customers who have not received an email have not been impacted,

Bodansky announced.

In a message sent to customers posted on Reddit, the company said that “no card details, PINs or passwords were accessed.” However, the breach disclosure states that hackers likely accessed partial card payment data, along with customers’ names, addresses, email addresses and phone numbers.
