Hudson’s Bay Company Confirms Lord and Taylor and Saks Data Breach
A Lord and Taylor and Saks Data Breach was just announced compromising over 5 million debit and credit card numbers. Hudson’s Bay Company, the parent company of Saks, Saks Off 5th and Lord & Taylor, confirmed the breach Sunday stating it “identified the issue and has taken steps to contain it.”
In a press release the company stated, “Once the Company has more clarity around the facts, it will notify customers quickly…” Online purchases are probably not affected. Hudson’s Bay indicated the cards compromised were in-store purchases mostly in the New York and New Jersey areas.
A cybersecurity firm, Gemini Advisory, identified the breach and posted this: “the attack is amongst the biggest and most damaging to ever hit retail companies,” according to Gemini. The hacked numbers were put up for sale on the dark web last week.
Gemini said the hackers were the same ones behind data breaches that affected companies recently such as: Whole Foods, Chipotle, Trump Hotels, and Omni Hotels and Resorts.
