The retailer said the breach affected approximately 2.6 million cards at its namesake stores between May 8 and Jan. 27 and another 400,000 at its subsidiary Aaron Brothers between June 26 and Feb. 27. The company says it has received “limited” reports of fraud.

Any retailer that values and prioritizes the whistle-blowing of the IT department employees is just fine. Anyone who is smart enough to say "oh, wait, that IS a good point Mr. IT person--we shouldn't do that. I was about to hand you my laptop and ask you to make it print on the network, but instead I will listen to your concerns."
So, of course, nowhere is safe.
