Your Data May Have Been Stolen If You Shopped With These Stores
According to Business Insider, your personal data may have been breached if you shopped or interacted online with several popular retailers, including Panera, Macy's, and Lord & Taylor.
In April 2018, Business Insider reported that "Panera Bread's website reportedly allowed anyone to access customers' personal information, including names, addresses, and partial credit card numbers." In addition, a security researcher claimed that he had made Panera aware of the breach 8 months before anything was done about it.
Two major retailers also had data breaches in the spring of last year.
Macy's confirmed that some online customers could have had personal information, including credit card information, breached.
And Hudson's Bay, which owns Lord & Taylor and Saks 5th Avenue, admitted that credit and debit card information of some of its customers had also been compromised.
Business Insider said that "according to a study by KPMG, 19% of consumers said they would completely stop shopping at a retailer after a breach."
Other companies that suffered data breaches in 2018 included Marriott, Adidas, Kay Jewelers, and Under Armour. To read more about these breaches, click here.
