According to Macy’s, their e-commerce website was breached in October. Hackers managed to steal information from unknowing customers as they shopped online. Overall, it’s a very scary situation that proves that data breaches can happen to anyone. Last year, online tech store Newegg was hit with a data breach that skimmed the payments page for over a month.
Based on the information in the report, the following information was potentially exposed:
- Phone Number
- E-mail Address
- Credit Card Number
- Security Code
A company spokesperson said: “We are aware of a highly sophisticated and targeted data security incident related to macys.com that affected a small number of customers during a one-week period in October,” the company said in an email. “Affected customers have been notified and will receive additional information, including instructions on how to enroll in consumer protection services at no cost.”
