US-based specialty retailer Bebe Stores has announced that it recently discovered suspicious activity on computers that operate the payment processing system for its stores.
The company has appointed a computer security firm and worked with them to block the attack from continuing.
The retailer believes that the attack was focused on and limited to data from payment cards swiped in its US, Puerto Rico and US Virgin Islands stores during a short window between 8 and 24 November 2014.
Jim Wiggett, CEO of Bebe Stores, said: "Our relationship with our customers is of the highest priority and we recognize the importance of protecting their information. We moved quickly to block this attack and have taken steps to further enhance our security measures."
Bebe Stores said it is offering credit monitoring services for one year to customers who made a purchase using a payment card at the company’s US, Puerto Rico or US Virgin Islands stores during the affected time frame last month.
