Data breach suffered due to website being compromised by malicious scripts designed to steal customer's payment information


Described at the time as "a game-changing Magecart attack", in November 2019, the retail company disclosed a data breach affecting a small number of customers who had their data stolen from its website during a one-week period in October.

The company discovered the breach in October and notified the affected customers a little over a month later and offered them consumer-protection services.
