Neiman Marcus: About 1.1 Million Cards Hacked
Neiman Marcus said Thursday that about 1.1 million customer credit and debit cards may have been hacked by malicious software.
The sophisticated, self-concealing malware was “clandestinely” installed on the department store operator’s system. The software then actively tried to collect or “scrape” payment card data from July 16 to Oct. 30, the company explained.
During that time, about 1.1 million cards “could have been potentially visible to the malware,” Neiman CEO Karen Katz wrote in a statement on the company’s website.
