As the news is continuing to develop, according to the Wall Street Journal it appears that Neiman Marcus’ data breach only affects in store purchases like Target.
It isn’t clear if there is any connection between the two incidents. Target has said that malicious software was used to access the card data, but Neiman Marcus hasn’t disclosed the nature of its attack. The company, like Target, did say the attack appeared only to affect cards used in stores and not those used online.
That’s a good thing for us, as we all bought the gift cards online.
