Another reason to seriously reconsider buying/being caught anywhere in a going-out-top: Bebe, choice purveyor of things to wear "in da club" has suffered a data breach. The retailer disclosed yesterday that an internal nip-slip happened during the busy November shopping period and affected shoppers in the U.S., Puerto Rico, and the US Virgin Islands.
