UPDATE: Customers react to Albertson's security breach

Posted: Updated:
UPDATE:

SPOKANE, Wash. - Local Albertson's customers tell KHQ they were surprised and a little worried about the security breach impacting nearly 400 Albertson's stores.

"Hopefully they'll get a handle on that stuff," said Bill Phares, a shopper in the store's busy parking lot on Nevada street. "I guess people need to change their passwords more often."

A spokesperson tells KHQ the security breach reached stores in Idaho, Montana and Washington. Albertson's says intruders tried to steal credit and debit card payment information for transactions between June 22nd and July 17th. 

The company is working with law enforcement to investigate the case and identify potential victims.

At this time, it has not been determined whether any cardholder data was in fact stolen. Albertson's says so far it has no evidence of any misuse of customer payment information.

If you did buy anything at Albertson's during the breach window, the company is offering you one year of free identity protection.
