The company is still waiting for Verizon to continue its forensic investigation before releasing full details of the breach, though the company said customers are its top priority and will continue to provide updates following the breach.

 

"We take this criminal activity very seriously,"the company said in a press statement. "We continue to work diligently with Verizon on this investigation and are taking necessary actions and precautions to mitigate and remediate the issues caused by this security incident.

 

The retailer also is working with the U.S. Secret Service to investigate the data breach - as the FBI and Secret Service have been frequently tasked with helping to investigate security breaches.
