There has been a recent security breach of the Lakeland site. In an email sent to customers on 23th July 2013:
"Late on Friday July 19th we discovered that the Lakeland website was being attacked by hackers in a sophisticated and sustained attack. Immediate action was taken to block the attack, repair the system and to investigate the damage done and this investigation continues.
Today it has become clear that two encrypted databases were accessed, though we've not been able to find any evidence that the data has been stolen. ...
We deeply regret that this has occurred and apologise for the inconvenience caused.
The security of our customers' data is hugely important to us and we are devastated to have fallen victim to these criminals. This has occurred despite the best efforts of ourselves and the industry leading IT company that runs our website for us to use the best security systems available. We are committed to protecting our customers' data and will continue to seek additional measures to ensure the integrity of our systems.
Lakeland had been subjected to a sophisticated cyber-attack using a very recently identified flaw in the Java software used by the servers running our website, and indeed numerous websites around the world. This flaw was used to gain unauthorised access to the Lakeland web system and data. Hacking the Lakeland site has taken a concerted effort and considerable skill. We only wish that those responsible used their talent for good rather than criminal ends."
Excellent site. Really good products which have been tested by them and work. If, for any reason you aren't satisfied, they will replace the item immediately if it is faulty or talk you through any problems you may be having with it.
