Kmart to settle data breach lawsuit for $5.2 mln - court filing

Discount retailer Kmart has agreed to pay $5.2 million to settle a lawsuit brought on behalf of hundreds of credit unions and banks over a 2014 data breach that allegedly compromised credit card information of the store’s customers nationwide.
