Kmart Hacked


First it was Target. Then it was Home Depot. And now? Kmart.

In the latest of what seems like an endless series of massive retailer hacks, Kmart has just disclosed (on a Friday afternoon when no one is really paying attention) that their payment systems were compromised throughout September and early October. Time to call your bank! Again.

The scale of the hack hasn’t been determined just yet, so there’s no word on how many cards were exposed — just that both credit and debit cards (albeit no PINs) were leaked.

This isn’t the best timing for Kmart, given that they spent much of the beginning of 2014 shutting down stores across the country.
