NEW YORK, New York –Eddie Bauer shoppers be warned: All of their North American stores were targeted by credit card thieves this year.
The company said Thursday that it found and removed malware from registers at about 350 stores. The clothing store chain also said there’s reason to believe credit and debit cards used at those stores between January 2 and July 17 this year “may have been compromised.”
“While not all transactions during this period were affected, out of an abundance of caution, Eddie Bauer is offering identity protection services to all customers who made purchases or returns during this period,” the company said in a statement.
The company declined to say how many customers were affected.
