Shortly after, Sally Beauty said less than 25,000 customers were affected, though has more recently changed its mind and said a larger number were hit.

 

Although the company didn't disclose an exact number yet, it is believed to be higher than 25,000, with debit and credit card information exposed. "As we have said previously, we will not speculate on the scope of our recent data security incident until the forensic review progresses because experience with such incidents at other retailers has taught that it is difficult to ascertain the extent of a data breach incident until the required forensic review is complete."
