Peachtree Mall retailer warns customers it has suffered data breach | Columbus Ledger-Enquirer

One of the nation's most popular stores is dealing with a major credit card breach.

Forever 21 says it's investigating a credit card data breach that may have affected in-store shoppers.

If that's the case, many of Forever 21's customers may find the chain's terse announcement concerning a potential breach of its point of sale systems less than satisfying.

Card transactions made at stores between March 2017 to October 2017 may have been affected. If you didn't make an in-store purchase during that time period then relax! However, the company admitted that not all of its stores had the security layers in operation during the time of the breach. Forever 21 hasn't disclosed which locations could have been a part of the stolen information.

Marvel Heroes' former creative director Jeff Donais told Kotaku that the studio's employees were massively overworked. Fans were upset by the lack of updates to the game, but the people making it weren't happy either.

The company also says it has launched an investigation into its card payment systems and security.

Forever 21 says customers should closely monitor their card statements, and they should immediately call their bank if they notice any suspicious activity. "Protecting our customers' payment card data is a top priority, and we are continuing to take steps to address this incident".

"Because a number of stores did not receive an encryption upgrade to their point of sale devices, hackers had the opening they needed to access payment card information", said Adam Levin, chairman and founder at CyberScout, via email.
