The company is still trying to nail down the exact dates of the breach, but believes it was between those dates.   While no concrete evidence has been found that the hackers were successful in obtaining any customer credit or debit card data, the store is taking pre-emptive action.

Albertson’s says consumers whose debit or credit cards may have been affected are being offered a free year of consumer identity protection through AllClear ID.   That service can be obtained by calling 1-855-865-4449.

Some 385 stores were affected, including ones in Washington. A wide variety of stores are under the Albertson’s umbrella, including Jewell-Osco, Acme, Shaw and Star Markets and other chains across the country.  A number of those stores were also subject to the cyber attack.

But again, according to the latest reports, Albertson’s has no evidence the hackers were successful in obtaining any consumer information.    More details are expected to be released as the investigation continues.
