Customers of International Checkout were recently warned that a significant amount of personal information has been stolen from the company, including credit card data.

"The company is advising customers to closely monitor their bank account statements for any suspicious transactions," writes Softpedia's Eduard Kovacs. "Bank account numbers were not exposed, but credit cards numbers were and in some situations the financial institutions involved may even recommend the changing of the account number."

"Unfortunately, a lot of companies are on International Checkout’s partner list so the number of potential victims is high, and people are already starting to complain about abusive transactions made with their credit cards," Kovacs writes.
