Sally Beauty has informed customers that it has suffered yet another data breach, investigating a reported security incident that took place in April. The company received reports that customers suffered suspicious activity on debit and credit cards that were used in the store.

The company, which doesn't collect PIN data, found malware on some point-of-sale (PoS) systems in its retail stores.

 

"We regret any inconvenience this incident may have caused our customers, and we want to reassure them that protecting our customers is our priority," said Chris Brickman, president and CEO of Sally Beauty. "Because we cannot pinpoint exactly which cards might have been affected during our reported date range, we are offering credit monitoring services to any customer who used their payment card at a U.S. Sally Beauty store between March 6 and April 17 of 2015."

 

Sally Beauty reported in March 2014 that it suffered a data breach that left thousands of customers exposed - and it's not uncommon for victimized companies to suffer another issue. It's unknown if these two incidents are related.
