Data breach of giant retailers
The US Secret Service is reportedly looking into yet another data breach of a giant retailer. However, the retailer Sears has denied any breach. News of the investigation follows several security breaches at US retailers, beginning with news that roughly 70 million credit- and debit-card customers had had personal information exposed to hackers from November 27 to December 15, 2013.
Since then, Neiman Marcus and Michaels Stores revealed their security systems had been compromised. Investigations are going on to confirm the extent of damage as well as those affected. SP
