Australian shopping website CatchOfTheDay has warned customers of a data breach dating back to 7 May 2011, urging anyone who has kept the same password at the site since that date to change it.

The site purports to be "Australia's number one shopping site", claiming 14.73% of all retail traffic from Australia, with over 2 million registered users and a sale made every second.

It's not been made clear how many customers were affected by the breach.
