Discover Financial Services notifies customers of data breach incident

Discover Financial Services has filed a data breach incident notification with the California attorney general’s office that some of its cardholders maybe have had their account information compromised.

Discover supplied few details in its Jan. 25 filing and cannot even tell its customers exactly what information may have been exposed, but it did specifically state the breach did not directly involve any Discover card systems. The company stated the breach was spotted on Aug. 13, 2018.

The company is issuing new cards as a precaution and is asking cardholders to keep an eye on their account for any fraudulent activity. Discover also consoled anyone so affected saying they will not be responsible for illegal charges made to their cards and to not contact any merchants listed about these purchases.
