If you’re someone who shops frequently at GameStop or who might have shopped there recently, it might be time to start paying attention to your credit card statements. In a report from Kotaku, they and several readers have received emails from GameStop informing them that their systems were breached and that information such as credit card data might have been stolen.

This comes on the heels of a report from back in April in which GameStop revealed that they were investigating a possible breach, and it looks like this email pretty much confirms it. In a statement provided to Kotaku, “GameStop identified and addressed a potential security incident that was related to transactions made on GameStop’s website during a specific period of time. GameStop mailed notification letters to customers who made purchases during that time frame advising them of the incident and providing information on steps they can take.”

The information that might have been stolen during the breach also includes names of customers and addresses, along with credit card data. This supposedly affects customers who have made an online order with the company between the 10th of August, 2016 until the 9th of February, 2017. It is unclear as to how many customers might have been affected as a result of this breach, so like we said, perhaps it’s time to start monitoring your credit card statements for potential fraudulent activity.
