    FRAMINGHAM, Mass. -- TJX Cos., operator of T.J. Maxx and Marshalls discount stores, said Wednesday its computer systems were hacked late last year and customer data has been stolen.

    The company said the full extent of the intrusion is not yet known, but it is conducting a full investigation.

    The hackers broke into a system that handles credit and debit card transactions, as well as checks and merchandise returns for customers in the U.S., Puerto Rico, and may also involve customers of T.J. Maxx stores in the U.K. and Ireland.

    The break-in was discovered in mid-December, but was kept confidential upon the request of law enforcement officials.

    TJX said it has hired General Dynamics Corp. and IBM Corp. to upgrade its security system.

  2. not good! Are Marshalls and TJ Maxx the same company? If so, I didn't know that.
     
  3. Thanks! Maybe that's why my cc's were cancelled. The bank wouldn't give any more details than there'd been a security breach.
     
  4. Marshalls and TJ Maxx are under the same group, as well as Home Goods. This is really a bad news.
