The same blogger, Brian Krebs of "Krebs on Security," who broke the news that Target Corporation suffered a massive security breach also confirmed a similar data breach involving customer credit and debit card information has hit upscale retailer Neiman Marcus. The retailer became aware of the situation on January 1, but according to the on-going investigation, the system was hit in mid-December and only affected in-store purchases.

The Neimans breach is much smaller than Target's, which affected nearly 70 million customers. The Wall Street Journal reports as few as one million cards were compromised at the department store. Still, it's enough to worry retailers large and small, who a beefing up their security.
