WARNING: Confirmed Breaches
Kmart has confirmed unauthorized payment activity due to a data breach at some of its retail stores.
Sears Holdings, Kmart's parent company, announced that payment systems at some of its 735 Kmart retail locations in the U.S. were infected with malware and card data from some in-store transactions were compromised. Personal customer identification data - such as names, addresses, social security numbers or email addresses- was not obtained by the fraudsters in the data breach.
The malware was successfully removed from all Kmart payment systems, but the investigation is ongoing. At this time the corporation is working to identify the number of Kmart locations affected and the timeframe of the compromise event. The investigation indicated no online customers or Sears locations were affected.
As with any card data compromise, please be aware that phishing scams may occur as fraudsters attempt to trick cardholders into providing missing identity or authentication information to facilitate fraudulent transactions.
