Bebe Stores says credit card data hacked
Women’s clothing retailer Bebe Stores has become the latest national retailer to be hit by an attack on its credit card payment system.
The company said Friday that the cardholder name, account number, expiration date, and verification code could have been stolen by hackers who apparently had access to the company’s payment processing system between Nov. 8 and 26.
The incident came to light in late November when Bebe said it noticed suspicious activity on computers that operate the payment processing system. Stores affected were the roughly 200 it operates in the U.S., Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
