Funky Pigeon hit by cyberattack, but says customers’ payment details are not at risk
Funky Pigeon has suspended orders and written to customers after the greeting card company was hit by a cyberattack.
Customers who placed orders in the last 12 months are notified by email of the attack. Funky Pigeon claims “no customer payment data” is at risk.
The company also says it doesn’t believe the passwords were compromised. It took its systems offline as a “precaution” and was not taking orders Tuesday morning.
Funky Pigeon said in a statement: “As soon as we became aware of the incident last Thursday, we launched a forensic investigation by external experts to understand the incident and determine if there was any impact on the customer data.

“We are currently investigating the extent to which personal data – in particular names, addresses, email addresses and personalized card and gift designs – have been accessed. We take the security of customer data very seriously and have temporarily suspended all new orders through the website.
Funky Pigeon said it notified regulators and law enforcement authorities of the breach. It promised to review and update its security protocols.
“We would sincerely apologize to our customers for any concern or disruption this may cause, and reassure them that our teams are working around the clock to investigate and resolve this incident,” the company added. “As our investigation progresses, we will provide further updates to customers and other affected parties as needed.”
