We just received an email from Best Buy Rewards Zone confirming that our email address was compromised along with the other Reward Zone members.
This breach of data is just one of the countless number of big corporations hit by a breakdown in security at Dallas Tx based Epsilon. Epsilon maintains the customer data for hundreds of big corporate clients.
Best Buy isn’t alone in one of the biggest hacks of our time. Citi, Walmart and even the Limited Group have been feverishly sending out customer warnings, and strategizing on better ways to protect data.
According to security experts the breach of security at Epsilon only resulted in names and email addresses. Customers are warned that they may see a barrage of spam.
