Hanesbrands Inc. has sent out notifications that a customer database was hacked in June. The breach compromised information for about 900,000 online and telephone customers.

Hanesbrands  says the hacker gained access to personal information including addresses, phone numbers and the last four digits of debit and credit card numbers.

A spokesman for the company says that email addresses and full credit-card numbers were not compromised.

The Winston-Salem Journal reports affected customers bought items online or by telephone using the “guest” option. Retail stores were not affected.

The data was exposed the last week of June and into early July.

Customers are being notified by email or mail.

Hanebrands learned of the breach after being notified by the hacker, who gave no motive.
