Adidas.com shut down after 'criminal attack'

Adidas has taken several of its websites offline after an attack last week

Adidas has been forced to take some of its main websites offline after a "sophisticated, criminal cyber-attack" that took place last week, the company said.

Adidas.com, reebok.com, miCoach.com and adidas-group.com all were taken offline, along with various local e-commerce sites, the company said in a statement Sunday.

At least two of the sites, adidas.com and miCoach.com, appeared to still be offline Monday evening. "Due to technical difficulties our website is currently not available," said a message at adidas.com.

The sportswear vendor first learned of the attack last Thursday, it said.

"Our preliminary investigation has found no evidence that any consumer data is impacted. But, while we continue our thorough forensic review, we have taken down affected sites ... in order to protect visitors to our sites," it said.

It didn't provide further details of the attacks or say who was responsible. A note on the miCoach website said Adidas hoped to have the site running again by the end of the day Tuesday.

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
