GameStop Confirms Payment Info Breach for Online Shoppers


GameStop recently notified customers their personal information and payment methods may have been compromised in a data breach the gaming retailer previously acknowledged in April.

An undisclosed number of customers received mailed notifications in June, warning them the company’s online shop may have been breached, Threatpost reported. In addition to the payment card numbers, expiration dates and verification numbers, information, customers’ names and addresses may have been stolen between Aug. 10, 2016 and Feb. 9, 2017.

GameStop acknowledged a third-party notified it of the breach. In April, GameStop told Krebs On Security it was investigating reports that payment information from its site was for sale on a website.
