Neiman Marcus is a Victim of Cyber Security Attack 1/12/14
January 12, 2014
NEW YORK - Luxury merchant Neiman Marcus says thieves may have stolen
customers' credit card and debit card information and made unauthorized charges
over the holiday season.
The hacking marks the second retailer after Target Corporation to be a
victim of a cyber-security 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.
Reeder says the Dallas-based retailer is working with the Secret Service.
Reeder wouldn't estimate how many customers may be affected.
