Neiman Marcus Hack Affected 1.1 Million Customers

The recent hacking of Neiman Marcus’ computers may have compromised the credit cards of 1.1 million customers, the company said in a recent update on its website.

Credit card companies have notified the company that approximately 2,400 unique cards used at Neiman Marcus and Last Call stores have been used fraudulently, it said.

The breach resulted from malicious software clandestinely installed on Neiman’s system and affected cards used from July 1, 2013, to Oct. 30, 2013. Online customers do not appear to have been affected, it added.

The update adds that social security numbers and birth dates were not compromised, and PINs were not at risk, as the company does not use PIN pads in its stores.

The store is offering all customers that shopped there from January 2013 to January 2014 a free year of credit monitoring and identity-theft protection.
