Rooster Teeth Productions has suffered a data breach that exposed payment card information from shoppers on the company’s online store.

The popular production company Rooster Teeth Productions has suffered a data breach, hackers have stolen credit card and other payment data from users that made purchases on the company’s online store.

Rooster Teeth Productions, LLC is an American entertainment company that is known for its documentaries, including Red vs. Blue, RTDocs, Crunch Time, and Day 5.

The data breach took place on December 2, and the company discovered the incident the same day. The attackers planted a malicious script into the checkout page of the online store, it was developed to redirect shoppers to a fake payment page under the control of the attackers.

“On December 2, 2019, Rooster Teeth discovered that malicious code had been added to the Site earlier the same day.  The malicious code directed users entering a checkout on the Site to a spoofed webpage where they were asked to enter payment card details in order to complete their purchases.” reads the notice of data breach published on the company site. “This was inserted after the stage at which users entered their shipping data.  Users who completed the payment card details page were then directed to the real webpage, where they were asked to complete the forms again.”

Hackers have stolen customers’ names, email addresses, telephone numbers, physical addresses, and/or payment card information.

In response to the incident, the company staff removed the malicious code from the store, then it has sent data breach notifications to customers to the affected users.

“We removed the malicious code from the Site and took other steps to secure the Site against further unauthorized access.  The incident did not affect any other part of the Site or other information maintained by us.” continues the notice.

Rooster Teeth Productions is also offering them a free 1-year Experian IdentityWorks subscription.

Impacted users are recommended to remain vigilant for fraudulent activities and to review payment card or personal account statements for unauthorized charges.
