More than 1 million credit cards may have been compromised in Staples hack


Staples says as many as 1.16 million customer credit cards may have been compromised as part of a malware attack on some of its point-of-sale systems earlier this year. Today the company released some of its findings of an investigation into the attacks, saying that malware was found in 113 of its US stores, and may have affected purchases at those locations made between August 10th, 2014 and September 16th, 2014. Staples added that at two stores, the malicious software could have been running unseen for even longer, dating all the way back to late-July.
