name, address, and hardware, service, and order information was leaked. If you’ve purchased anything from Dell, or engaged with customer support for a service or warranty request, that information is likely available to whoever wants to buy the information.

So far, Dell is not saying that any financial information was breached, including credit cards or payment information, or even your telephone number or email address.

The data includes people’s names, phone numbers, email addresses, service reports, data on hardware replacement, various hardware components, customer device diagnostic logs, and more. In some instances, the data even included photos taken by Dell customers which, among the metadata, included precise GPS locations of where the photos had been taken.
