Neiman Marcus: Data breach confirmed, customers at risk

See also

Neiman Marcus has revealed that it has been hacked and its customers are at risk. According to the Washington Post on Saturday, hackers breached Neiman Marcus’ servers and accessed the payment information of persons who were at the store.

The incident was reported first on Friday when there had been a tremendous increase in the number of fraudulent charges on credit cards and debit cards that were used at the Neiman Marcus stores.

Very little is known about the breach by the hackers at this time. Neiman Marcus has yet to reveal what data was taken off the customer’s cards. Additionally, the firm did not say if other stores which Neiman Marcus owns were affected by the data breach. The Dallas-based store also owns Bergdorf Goodman, Cusp, Last Call, and Horchow.

While low on the output of information thus far, Neiman Marcus has thus far taken to the social media web site Twitter to apologize for the breach and stating that it is working to notify affected-customers who had their cards fraudulently used after shopping at their stores. Specifically, the Neiman Marcus message said: “The security of our customers’ information is always a priority and we sincerely regret any inconvenience.”

This information is released some three weeks after Target revealed that its customers had been breached. On Friday, Target said that many more customers had been negatively affected by their firm’s breach than originally reported.
