The BBC reports that "Tesco has deactivated some customers' net accounts after their login names and passwords were shared online."

According to the story, more than 2,000 people with accounts on Tesco's website had their information was posted to a text-sharing site; Tesco says it believes that the information "had been compiled by hackers using details stolen from other sites.

The story notes that "the attack is not the first time that Tesco has fallen victim to cyber-thieves. In early 2013 hundreds of owners of Tesco Clubcards reported their loyalty card account had been penetrated."
