It's been about two months since I first reported the Staples breach. Two month later, Staples has finally gotten around to admitting that it was breached by hackers.
If you shopped at a Staples store between August 10th and September 16th, then it's possible that your data was exposed. The grand total of at-risk customers, Staples claims, comes out to about 1.16 million.

The amount of time it took each individual store to figure out that it had been infected and hunt down the malware was around 40 days, according to Securelert, a cybersecurity company.
That's a pretty massive turnaround time. At least the company is acknowledging that it was breached.
