The Clop ransomware gang claims to have attacked Saks Fifth Avenue on its dark web leak site.
Although the company states no real customer data is impacted, it did not address if corporate or employee data was stolen.
Founded in 1867 by Andrew Saks and headquartered in New York City, Saks Fifth Avenue remains among prominent luxury brand retailers serving the U.S., Canada and parts of the Middle East.
“Fortra, a vendor to Saks and many other companies, recently experienced a data security incident that led to mock customer data being taken from a storage location used by Saks,” a Saks spokesperson told BleepingComputer.
In 2018, the Fin7 cybercrime syndicate had hacked Saks Fifth Avenue and Lord & Taylor to steal payment card information of 5 million customers.
Nearly a year prior to that, BuzzFeed News had reported that Saks Fifth Avenue was storing personal information of tens of thousands of customers on publicly-accessible pages.
