“There are reports of Saks Fifth Avenue inadvertently exposing the personal information of customers online.
The breach, which was first reported by Buzzfeed, had the e-mail addresses and phone numbers of shoppers visible on the Saks website.
Parent company Hudson’s Bay Co. released the following statement regarding the incident:
“We take this matter seriously. We want to reassure our customers that no credit, payment, or password information was ever exposed. The security of our customers is of utmost priority and we are moving quickly and aggressively to resolve the situation, which is limited to a low single-digit percentage of email addresses. We have resolved any issue related to customer phone numbers, which was an even smaller percent.”
