The reported incident involves confirmed unauthorized access to Harbor Freight Tools' transaction processing system, which exposed customer information that included customer names, credit and debit card numbers, card expiration dates, and the three-digit security codes (CVV/CVC codes) located on the magnetic stripe on the card.
