A Houston area liquor store chain says customers’ personal information may have been exposed to hackers.
Spec’s officials say shoppers who used debit/credit cards or personal checks in 34 locations across Houston, College Station, Corpus Christi and El Paso may have had their information stolen.
Those who shopped in the stores between October, 2012 and last week may have been exposed. Less than five-percent of their transactions were reportedly impacted. The Spec’s superstore on Smith near downtown was not affected in this case.
The alleged theft is the latest in a string of online hacks that also affected companies like Target and Neiman Marcus.
The company released a statement which read in part, "This invasion is extremely upsetting to us and we are deeply concerned about its impact on you, our customers. Earning and maintaining your loyalty and trust is our highest priority."
