Carousell users were informed of the breach that happened on 14 October via an email sent out on 21 October, although they didn’t mention why it took them a week to inform users.

Carousell said that the security breach happened because of a bug that was introduced during their system migration, which was then used by a third party to gain unauthorised access to users’ personal data.

Carousell added that they have fixed the bug, and any further unauthorised access to users’ personal information is now blocked.
