Notice of Recent Cyberware Attack - December 22, 2022
On December 8, 2022, JAKKS experienced what many other companies have been and are experiencing: a ransomware attack by bad actors who inserted malware into JAKKS’ computer network and locked up our servers.
We promptly retained cyber forensics specialists who are actively investigating the incident, helping to restore our servers, taking steps to prevent a recurrence, and utilizing additional security measures to help safeguard the integrity of our system’s infrastructure and the data contained therein. Our Form 8-K describing the event was filed on December 15, 2022, and can be found at https://www.jakks.com/investors/sec-filings.php.
We believe that the data that was unlawfully accessed potentially includes personal information (including names, emails, addresses, taxpayer identification numbers, and banking information of affected individuals and businesses).
We suggest that you immediately take appropriate protective measures to safeguard your personal and banking information.
This is an ongoing investigation. JAKKS regrets any inconvenience this incident may cause. Be assured that we have been and will continue working diligently to protect the security and confidentiality of the information contained in our computer network, as we get our network up and running.
