Adidas websites hit by cyber attack

No consumer data compromised

It insisted, however, that there is no evidence that any consumer data has been compromised.

Adidas discovered the attack on 3 November and took down the affected sites, including,,, and various local eCommerce shops, while it carried out its investigations.

The company has since implemented additional data security measures, and while the majority of the websites were restored yesterday, a spokesperson for Adidas said that it is still working on getting and back online.

"We appreciate your understanding and patience during this time," the company said in a statement.
