EUREKA- Staples said a data breach may have affected more than a million credit and debit card holders. One of those stores impacted is the Eureka Staples on W. Harris Street.
The office supply company said an in-house investigation detected malware at some point-of-sale systems at 115 locations nationwide. About one million cards may have been affected. Based on its investigation, staples believes that malware may have allowed access to cardholder names, card numbers, expiration dates, and card verification codes.
Staples is offering free identity protection services to customers who used a card to pay at any of the affected stores between July 20 to September 16 of this year.
Staples said it has gotten rid of the malware and has established a toll free call center to answer consumer questions about this incident. The number is (866)-274-4371.
