OnePlus hack exposed credit cards of up to 40,000 people • CNET
David Katzmaier:
<p>If you bought a OnePlus phone such as the OnePlus 5T between November and January, you'd best check your credit card statement.

The phone maker on Friday confirmed in a statement that its website,, was hacked, potentially exposing the detailed credit card information of up to 40,000 customers. 

The company sent an email to customers saying that card numbers, expiration dates and security codes "may have been compromised."

A malicious script on the company's pages was inserted, harvesting the information from web browsers. The company says it has been removed, but customers who entered information into the site between mid-November 2017 and Jan. 11, 2018 could be at risk.</p>

"A malicious script was inserted"? So that's quite a hack - first into the company web server, and then capturing all those details. This needs quite a lot of explaining by OnePlus.

Chinese smartphone maker OnePlus breaks billion-dollar sales barrier • The Telegraph
James Titcomb:
<p>Oneplus, the cult Chinese smartphone maker, has broken the billion-dollar sales barrier for the first time and made a profit, a rare feat in the ultra-competitive mobile market.

The company’s chief executive Pete Lau told The Telegraph that its revenues last year had doubled to more than $1.4bn (£1bn) and that this had come with “healthy profits”. It comes as OnePlus plans to challenge bigger players by tying up with mobile networks in the US and Europe.

The smartphone market has been flooded by competition from Chinese upstarts in recent years, making profits rare and sending established brands like HTC and Motorola into losses. While OnePlus pales to most of its rivals in size, Mr Lau said it has eked out healthy margins by focusing only on the high-end of the market. It sells most of its mobiles directly to a core of fans online, instead of through mobile networks, although it began to distribute phones through O2 in the UK in 2016.</p>

Some confusion between the headline, intro and second para. I think it's that they've passed a billion dollars. That's an average of $250m per quarter; at $250 per handset that would be a million per quarter, or 4m per year. At $125 per handset, it's 8m per year. Those seem like the likely boundaries of its sales.

So that's the good news. Now we go to the bad news…

Some people have had their credit card numbers stolen after buying OnePlus phones online • BGR
Chris SMith:
<p>If you purchased a OnePlus phone and paid with a credit card, you should check your account for fraudulent charges immediately. Apparently, it already happened to some OnePlus customers, who were notified about fraudulent transactions on credit cards that were used to buy OnePlus phones.

According to a poll on the company’s own forum, 69 people so far have noticed fraudulent charges after a OnePlus transaction.

OnePlus has yet to confirm a data breach that would have allowed hackers to steal user data such as credit card information. And it’s always possible that the users who were notified of fraudulent charges by their banks were hacked in some other way, and it’s all a big coincidence. But the poll, <a href="">available at this link</a>, seems to suggest there may be an issue with OnePlus, as some of the impacted customers used their cards online for little else other than to buy a OnePlus phone online…

…The company says it started investigating the issue but found no cause so far. OnePlus says that card info is “never processed or saved on our website.” Instead, the data is sent “directly to our PCI-DSS-compliant payment processing partner over an encrypted connection, and processed on their secure servers.”</p>
