Three More U.S. Retailers May Have Been Hacked

Posted: Updated:

Along with Target shoppers and Neiman Marcus customers, three more retailers may have had their systems hacked during the holiday shopping season.

Luxury retailer, Neiman Marcus, says it's notifying customers cyber-criminals stole credit and debit card information over the holiday season.

It follows Target's disclosure that some 70 million shoppers had names, phone numbers and email addresses stolen, on top of 40 million cards compromised.

"Random people have been calling us, saying we got your information. So, I'm guessing it has been sold. Everybody's information has been sold," said Mindy Reid, a Target customer.

Reid says it's changed the way she shops. "We're only using cash," said Reid. "I just think it is safer for awhile."

Reuters is reporting at least three other U.S. retailers, who've not been named, also had their systems breached.

Cyber security expert, Shawn Henry, says these attacks are widespread and worldwide. "If you build a 10 foot firewall, they bring a 12 foot ladder."

Henry says the methods used in both the Neiman Marcus and Target hacks suggest they are linked and the thieves may be from eastern Europe.

Neiman Marcus hasn't said how many credit and debit cards were compromised.
