U.S. online fashion retailer SHEIN has admitted that the company has suffered a significant data breach after unknown hackers stole personally identifiable information (PII) of almost 6.5 million customers.

Based in North Brunswick and founded in 2008, SHEIN has become one of the largest online fashion retailers that ships to more than 80 countries worldwide. The site has been initially designed to produce “affordable” and trendy fashion clothing for women.

SHEIN revealed last weekend that its servers had been targeted by a “concerted criminal cyber-attack” that began in June this year and lasted until August 22, when the company was finally made aware of the potential theft.
