Neiman Marcus announced thieves may have stolen customers’ credit card and debit card information
The data breach at Neiman Marcus marks the second retailer after Target Corp. to be a victim of an attack in recent weeks.
Neiman Marcus’s spokeswoman Ginger Reeder said in an email that its credit card processor notified the retailer in mid-December about potentially unauthorized payment card activity. On Jan. 1, a forensics firm confirmed evidence that the upscale retailer was a victim of a criminal cyber-security intrusion and that some customers’ cards were possibly compromised as a result.
There is not an estimate of the number of card-members affected at this time.
