Statement by the company:
 

Easton-Bell Sports, Inc. (“Easton-Bell”), which includes Easton, Bell, Riddell, Giro, Blackburn and Easton Cycling, recently discovered that vendor servers were subject to a malicious software (“malware”) computer intrusion. We believe the incident may have begun on December 1, 2013. The servers that were accessed contained Easton-Bell e-commerce consumers’ information and may impact customers who made online purchases between December 1, 2013 and December 31, 2013. This may have included personal information, such as name, address, telephone number, email, and credit card number along with the three or four digit credit card security code on the card provided. Upon discovery of this intrusion, we immediately shut down the affected servers and took steps to prevent further access to this information, including cleaning and rebuilding the affected servers.
