Neiman Marcus Hacked; Some Credit Card Data Stolen
“Retailer Neiman Marcus informed customers on Friday evening that the company’s data security systems had been compromised in December, resulting in the potential theft of customer credit card data.
According to the company, the attack was carried out in mid-December. Neiman Marcus was informed by its merchant processor of potentially unauthorized credit card activity, and it launched an investigation with an unnamed intelligence and risk management firm to uncover the extent of the breach. The company is also working with the U.S. Secret Service, as well as the payment brands involved.”
