Sally Beauty’s Security Breach Grows In Scope
DENTON, Texas (AP) – Sally Beauty says a security breach in March may have affected more of its customers than it earlier estimated.
The beauty products seller said last week that the breach affected fewer than 25,000 credit and debit card accounts. It said Friday that based on an investigation into the incident, a larger number of records containing payment card data may have been illegally accessed and removed from its system.
Sally Beauty refused to say how many accounts may have been impacted until the forensic review is complete.
The company says that it is offering one free year of credit monitoring and identity-theft protection to customers who may have been affected by the incident.
Sally Beauty Holdings Inc., based in Denton sells and distributes products through 4,700 stores worldwide.
