GameStop Investigating Possible Major Online Security Breach
Well, this isn’t a good look…
Shortly after its rather sour earnings report last month, GameStop revealed last week that it is looking into a potentially massive security breach involving customers’ data and credit card information. The hack reportedly happened between September 2016 and this past February and only impacts customers who shopped online. Still that means that anyone who made an online purchase through the video game retailer’s website during the most recent holiday season could be impacted—in a January statement, the company reported nearly $300 million in online sales during the holiday period.
The breach might include sensitive information including credit card numbers, expiration dates, customers’ addresses, and the three-digit verification numbers.
