Hackers Steal Card Data from Neiman Marcus Customers
Target is not the only retailer that suffered cyber security attacks over the holidays.
On Saturday, Neiman Marcus reported that hackers have accessed the debit and credit card information of an undisclosed number of customers and made unauthorized purchases.
The retail chain of 70+ stores was told of the breach in mid-December by their credit card processor. The Secret Service is now investigating this breach.
It appears that only in-store customers were affected, not online transactions.
This comes on the heels of Friday’s announcement that the security breach that hit Target was much larger than first reported. Certain personal information was compromised on up to 70 million shoppers during November and December. The information includes names, addresses, phone numbers and email addresses. The company had reported that credit and debit card information had been stolen on as many as 40 million people between Black Friday and December 15. While these are two separate groups of customers, it is believed that the groups overlap, but it is unknown to what extent at this time.
