It probably won't come as a surprise if the number of people affected is far higher than they're estimating.
If you've visited the site recently, you need to request a new credit or debit card from your financial institution.

No never used the site either but thanks for the heads up @Bambino.
Makes me certainly wary of using any site you see advertised on the telly. If it can happen to Vision Direct, it can happen to any of them.

No system is ever 100% secure as there are always weaknesses.
The very best you can do is to correct problems in the code that it runs and erect defences around it, oh and enforce strong password requirements.
