Hudson’s Bay exposes Saks customer info online Add to ...

Hudson’s Bay Co., the Canadian owner of luxury retailer Saks Fifth Avenue, exposed the personal information of tens of thousands of customers through the company’s websites.

The company posted information including e-mail addresses and phone numbers for customers at Saks as well as identification codes for products that customers signed up for on wait-lists. The private data were taken down after Hudson’s Bay was contacted by BuzzFeed News, which first reported the exposure.

“The security of our customers is of utmost priority and we are moving quickly and aggressively to resolve the situation, which is limited to a low single-digit percentage of e-mail addresses,” a Hudson’s Bay spokeswoman said in an e-mailed statement Sunday. “We have resolved any issues related to customer phone numbers, which was an even smaller percent.”

No credit, payment or password information was ever exposed, according to the spokeswoman.
