Data Breach Affects 5 Million Stolen Cards Used At Department Stores

Hackers now have the stolen information of more than five-million credit cards used at Saks Fifth Avenue, Saks Off 5th, and Lord & Taylor stores. Hudson's Bay Company confirmed the breach and says it has identified the issue and taken steps to contain it. Over 125-thousand account numbers are currently on the dark web for sale according to Gemini Advisory, who caught the breach. They say the info has been compromised since last May.

Hudson's Bay owns the retail chains and said once it has more information, customers will be notified quickly and offered free ID protection services. They also will not be responsible for any suspicious charges. The company believes the cards were for in-store purchases only, and doesn't suspect online purchases were affected.Source: NBC News
