DEERFIELD, Ill. — Walgreens this weekend reported that its customer email database, which is hosted by a third-party vendor, was accessed without permission.
The drug store chain, which uses vendor Epsilon to deploy its email promotional messages, said that law enforcement authorities were notified and are investigating the matter. The company also emphasized that email addresses were the only information obtained in this incident.
Walgreens wasn't the only retailer affected by the breach: Supermarket retailer Kroger also used Epsilon for its customer email communications. Other companies include JPMorgan Chase, Best Buy and TiVo.
