Macy's data breach includes online card information


Macy's is reporting a serious data breach for online customers who shopped on the store's website between April and June of 2018.

A Macy's spokesperson told Bloomberg that customers registered on Macys.com or Bloomingdales.com were possibly impacted by the breach.

While personal data including birth dates may have been accessed, Macy's said that social security numbers were not accessed.

The data breach occurred between April 26 and June 10, with the company detecting suspicious activity on June 11 and blocking the profiles in question on June 12.

Customers that may have been impacted have been contacted, and Macy’s said it is offering consumer protection services to them for free.
