Best Buy hit with security breach

NEW YORK — For the second month in a row, Best Buy had to tell customers that their email addresses were compromised.

The chain said that a former business partner’s files containing email addresses of some Best Buy customers were accessed without authorization. Best Buy said it would take legal action but it did not name the vendor involved.

Less then a month ago, Best Buy was among dozens of retailers that warned customers that their email addresses had been compromised in a breach involving email marketing services firm, Epsilon.
