(WASHINGTONPOST) — Beauty supplier Sally Beauty confirmed Monday that hackers broke into its network, stealing the payment data of up to 25,000 customers.
The information stolen included payment card numbers and the three-digit security codes found behind them, known as CVV numbers, the company said. The retailer said it does not store customers’ personal identification numbers (PINs).
Customers would be notified if their information had been affected, Sally Beauty said, and it advised all shoppers to check their bank statements for suspicious transactions. The company did not provide specifics on the nature of the breach, but posted an FAQ on its Web site.
