Over the weekend a major credit card theft was reported involving Saks 5 Avenue and Lord & Taylor stores. The hacker group JokerFlash has started marketing for sale large bundles of this data on the dark web. If you have shopped at any of these stores please contact the credit or debit card issuing authority of the card you used immediately and have your number changed.
From the article (quoting):
- On March 28, 2018, a JokerStash hacking syndicate announced the release for sale of over five million stolen credit and debit cards
- In cooperation with several financial organizations, we have confirmed with a high degree of confidence that the compromised records were stolen from customers of Saks Fifth Avenue and Lord & Taylor stores.
- We estimate the window of compromise to be May 2017 to present.
- Based on the analysis of the available data, the entire network of Lord & Taylor and 83 Saks Fifth Avenue locations have been compromised. The majority of stolen credit cards were obtained from New York and New Jersey locations.
- As of this writing, approximately 125,000 records have been released for sale, although we expect the entire cache to become available in the following months.
