High-end shoppers may have snickered at Target’s recent data security breach, but now they may be dealing with a crisis of their own: Neiman Marcus says its own security breach may have compromised 1.1 million credit cards last year.

The retailer says on its website that Visa, Mastercard and Discover have reported approximately 2,400 cards from Neiman Marcus customers that were used improperly. According to Neiman Marcus, this improper use likely comes from malicious software in the company’s system that attempted to take credit card information between July 16 and Oct. 30, 2013.
