Snippet -

GameStop is investigating a potential security breach in GameStop.com that may have resulted in customer credit card data being compromised as reported by Krebs On Security.

Two sources in the financial services industry have reported to Krebs On Security that the breach was purported to have happened within the window of mid-September 2016 and the first week of February 2017. GameStop itself had the breach brought to its attention when a third party notified them that credit card data (noted as having been collected from their website) was being offered for sale on a website.

The compromised data is thought to include the credit card number, expiration data, name, address, and – most critically – the card verification value (CVV2). Typically, a CVV2 is a three-digit code printed on the back of cards as an additional layer of security against fraud. Websites typically refrain from storing this data, but the injection of malicious code into a website could copy the CVV2 number as its entered and pass it along to nefarious third parties.
