Genesco Inc., a wholesale and retail marketer of footwear, headwear and accessories, said today it had suffered a cyber attack on its system that processes payment card transactions for its United States Journeys, Journeys Kidz, Shi by Journeys, Johnston & Murphy, and Underground Station stores.
Although the extent of the compromise is currently unknown, Genesco CEO Robert J. Dennis said in a statement he does not believe any personal information was compromised by the hacker, or that payment card transactions in any of the e-commerce or catalog businesses, any of its Lids Sports businesses, or any of its Canadian stores were affected.
Since learning of the intrusion, the company has worked diligently with outside experts to protect customers’ information, Dennis said.
“We recommend that our customers review their card statements and other account information carefully and immediately notify their card issuer if they suspect fraudulent use,” he said. “We sincerely regret any inconvenience this attack on our network may cause our customers.”
