Neiman Marcus Hacked, Credit Card Data Swiped
Better check your Black Card statement: luxury department store Neiman Marcus got hacked in December, and customer credit card data is feared stolen, the store told customers yesterday.
“Some customers’ cards were possibly compromised as a result,” company spokeswoman Ginger Reeder told tech website Re/code. “We have begun to contain the intrusion and have taken significant steps to further enhance information security.”
So far, the company hasn't said how many customers may have been affected, but the issue was brought to light by a payment processing company that noticed unusual transactions.
The company's iconic Beverly Hills store is one of 42 locations nationwide. The firm is based in Texas.
