Another Day, Another Retailer in a Massive Credit Card Breach

The corporate hacks keep coming. The latest target, according to cybersecurity blogger Brian Krebs, is the beauty supply chain Sally Beauty, a retailer that draws customers from salons and other stylists.

A new batch of 282,000 stolen debit and credit cards were posted for sale this week on underground marketplaces, and Krebs believes they have been used at one of Sally Beauty’s 2,600 stores. It’s the latest scoop from Krebs, who has managed to penetrate the criminal underground to break major stories, including the Target and Neiman Marcus hacks.
