Attackers captured personal information by compromising the automobile retailer’s websites, which were hosted by a third party named TradeMotion.

AutoNation is notifying an undisclosed number of clients that their names, addresses, phone numbers, email addresses and payment card information might have been stolen.

TradeMotion informed AutoNation of the intrusion on May 6. AutoNation mailed consumers notification letters on May 20, according to a May 26 letter to the New Hampshire attorney general’s office. The hackers might have had access to the information between March 5 and May 2.

TradeMotion says malicious software the attackers used to extract the data has been removed. TradeMotion has been removed from its job processing card payments for AutoNation.
