GameStop investigates possible data breach

GRAPEVINE, TX (WWBT/KXAS) - GameStop is investigating a possible data breach.

The company said that the breach involves hackers finding credit card information that was used on GameStop.com, and the data was offered for sale on a website, according to computer security expert Brian Krebs.

GameStop recently received notification from a third party that it believed payment card data from cards used on the GameStop.com website was being offered for sale on a website.

The information was likely compromised between September 2016 and February 2017, sources told Krebs On Security.

The data collected may also include customers' names, addresses, card numbers, expiration dates, and three-digit security codes found on the back of credit cards.

Here are some things to do if you made a purchase on GameStop.com between September and February, according to KXAS.

  • Check your bank statements
  • Call your bank immediately if you notice any suspicious activity
  • Delete your credit or debit card if it is saved on GameStop.com
  • Change your username and password
