Lord & Taylor Customers Stolen Data
Hackers stole credit and debit card information from millions of consumers who have shopped at Saks Fifth Avenue and Lord & Taylor stores. Parent company, Hudson’s Bay Company, confirmed the security breach on Sunday, stating that customer payment card data at certain Saks Fifth Avenue, Saks Off 5TH and Lord & Taylor stores in North America are impacted.
The breach was first highlighted by cybersecurity firm Gemini Advisory, which linked the stores to stolen information recently posted on the dark web by hacking syndicate JokerStash, also known as FIN7. On March 28, JokerStash announced the sale of over five million stolen credit and debit cards, said the security company.
“Several large financial institutions have confirmed that all tested records had been used before at Saks Fifth Avenue, Saks Fifth Avenue OFF 5TH, a discounted offset brand of luxury Saks Fifth Avenue stores, as well as Lord & Taylor stores,” the company said in a post.
