    "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," a company spokesman wrote in response to questions from this author.

    “That day a leading security firm was engaged to investigate these claims. Gamestop has and will continue to work non-stop to address this report and take appropriate measures to eradicate any issue that may be identified,” the company’s statement continued.

    Two sources in the financial industry told KrebsOnSecurity that they have received alerts from a credit card processor stating that Gamestop.com was likely compromised by intruders between mid-September 2016 and the first week of February 2017.
