Hackers steal data from Citigroup clients

BLADE STAFF AND NEWS SERVICES

HONG KONG — Hackers stole information for 360,000 Citigroup Inc. U.S. credit card accounts in a recent data breach, although the number of customers affected was not much higher than originally reported, the bank said this week.

Citi said about 1 percent of its credit card customers had information hacked online but did not say how many. The number affected was thought to be 210,000, based on Citi’s 2010 annual report, which said the firm had 21 million North American credit card customers.
