Forever 21 announced on Tuesday that customers who shopped in certain stores this year may have had their credit-card information stolen.

Customers who shopped in store from March 2017 through October 2017 may be affected.

A third-party monitor alerted the retailer to the fact that in some instances, an encryption used to hide customer credit-card data was not functioning properly.

The number of people potentially affected was not immediately available, but Forever 21 said in a press release that its investigation is ongoing.
