Staples says a malware hack may have lifted 1.16 million payment cards from point of sale systems at 115 of its roughly 1,400 U.S. retail stores. The hackers may have lifted cardholder names, card numbers, experation dates and experation codes.

Staples detected and eliminated the malware in mid-September 2014. The company also hired third-party data security experts to investigate the incident and has worked closely with payment card companies and law enforcement on this matter, according to a statement from the retailer today.
