Macy’s reportedly suffers a data breach

By CSA Staff - 07/09/2018
Cyber-criminals gained access to profiles of Macy’s online customers.

According to a letter mailed to online customers last week, Macy's detected suspicious login activities on June 11, according to The Cincinnati Business Courier, which cited the Detroit Free Press.

According to the report, a third party obtained customer information, including customers’ user names and passwords, through websites not related to the Macy’s brands. This information was used to gain access to “a small number” of online customers' accounts, including customers' full names, addresses, phone numbers, email addresses, birthdays and debit or credit card numbers with expiration dates. The breach took place between April 26 and June 12.

Upon learning about the incident, Macy's blocked customer accounts that were compromised, and sent a letter to potentially impacted customers. Following a thorough investigation, Macy’s addressed the cause and, as a precaution, implemented additional security measures, the Cincinnati Business Courier revealed.
