As my password for the site would be difficult to crack by brute force or dictionary attacks I believe their site may have been compromised to reveal only usernames and passwords. I don't believe users' payment information has been compromised or they would have used them directly or sold them instead of using the site to place gift card orders. I have since removed my payment methods, changed my password and notified their support staff of the potential breach. If you have an account with Rakuten/Buy, I strongly suggest removing your payment methods and hardening your password.
