There has been a massive data breach of Hannaford Bros. customer information:

“The Hannaford Bros. supermarket chain said a breach of its computer system led to the theft of about 4.2 million credit and debit card numbers from its Hannaford and Sweetbay stores and other locations.”

Since there have been reported cases of fraud already, an immediate credit freeze is necessary to stop unauthorized used of personal data. If you have been a Hannaford Bros. customer, take the necessary steps to protect yourself from identity theft.
