Data breach affects online customers of Macy's, Bloomingdale's

By ,

Some customers of macys.com and bloomingdales.com have been subject to a data breach, according to the retailers’ parent company.

Hackers accessed accounts between April 26 and June 12, viewing customer profiles, names, addresses and credit card expiration dates, said a statement from Macy’s Inc.

Only one-half of 1 percent of logged-in users were impacted, the statement said.

“We have investigated the matter thoroughly, addressed the cause and, as a precaution, have implemented additional security measures,” the company said. “Macy’s Inc. will provide consumer protection services at no cost to those customers. We have contacted potentially impacted customers with more information about these services.”

Macy’s did not return a call for comment at press time.

Online shoppers were advised by the company to check their credit card statements for suspicious activity.
