Fred's Inc. announced in June that it is investigating a potential breach when malware was discovered on their point-of-sale system. The discount merchandiser operates 650 stores in multiple states and the company is not clear on how many stores were affected.
"Sources said it was unclear how many Fred’s locations were affected, but that the pattern of fraudulent charges traced back to Fred’s stores across the company's footprint in the midwest and south, including Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Tennessee and Texas."
