Saks 5th Avenue data breach compromises customers’ credit card info

Hudson’s Bay Co. says customer payment card information was involved in a “data security issue” at certain Saks Fifth Avenue, Saks OFF 5th and Lord & Taylor stores in North America.

The company didn’t say whether any Canadian locations were affected.

It says the investigation is ongoing, but there’s no indication that the breach affects the company’s digital platforms or Hudson’s Bay and Home Outfitters stores.

HBC says there could be fraudulent charges to customers’ accounts because of the breach, but adds that those customers won’t be liable to pay them.

Glad I can’t afford to shop at Saks.
