A quite terrible 12 months for GameStop acquired even worse this 7 days, as the retailer sent out letters to on line buyers informing them that their credit rating cards may perhaps have been stolen.

In the letter, which numerous Kotaku visitors (and an editor-in-chief) obtained yesterday, GameStop says that breachers may perhaps have attained names, addresses, and credit rating card information from any person who “placed or tried to place orders on our web-site from August ten, 2016 to February nine, 2017.”

“We are notifying you because you put or tried to place an purchase on all through this time period of time using a payment card ending in ,” the letter says, confirming a report from previously this 12 months.

In a assertion to Kotaku this morning, the organization reported: “GameStop determined and dealt with a potential security incident that was linked to transactions made on GameStop’s web-site all through a specific period of time of time. GameStop mailed notification letters to buyers who made purchases all through that time body advising them of the incident and supplying information on steps they can consider.”

This news comes at a tricky time for GameStop. The retailer has been struggling to adapt to the video sport industry’s go towards digital game titles, and it has taken fire for its controversial Circle of Life system, which uses quotas to measure worker general performance.
