Major credit card breach at Kmart stores, check your bank accounts!
For the second time in three years, Kmart Stores has been hit by a malware-based credit card breach.
It has been revealed that cyber criminals infected Kmart Store payment data systems with a malicious code and managed to compromise certain credit card numbers. According to Kmart’s announcement, no personal information (such as names, addresses, social security numbers etc) was obtained.
It is also reported that the malicious code was undetectable by current anti-virus systems.
What you should do now?
Since the obtained cardholder data can be used to create counterfeit cards and use them to buy high-priced items, it is strongly advised that Kmart customers carefully review and monitor their debit and credit card account statements.
It is important to note that the policies of most credit card companies state that customers have no liability for any unauthorized charges if they report them in a timely manner.
It is also possible to contact Kmart customer care center any time at 888-488-5978.
