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.”
