Staples says it’s investigating a "potential issue" involving its customers’ credit card data in what could be the latest instance of a U.S. retailer falling victim to a payment card system security breach, CNET reports. The office supply chain announced late Monday it was working with law enforcement officials after security expert Brian Krebs reported that "multiple banks" had identified patterns of payment card fraud that suggested data had been stolen from several locations in the northeastern U.S. The pattern indicates that Staples cash registers in a handful of locations were infected with data-stealing malware similar to what was used in other security breaches, enabling thieves to create counterfeit cards, Krebs wrote.
