'Bama customers notified of breach

Officials with an online company that sells Crimson Tide gear says some customers have seen multiple fraudulent charges on their bank accounts after a security breach on the website.

The Huntsville Times reports (http://bit.ly/Acn9fe ) that Bamastuff.com sent an email to customers who bought items between Aug. 1, 2009, and Jan. 16, 2012 that their names, addresses, credit card information and email addresses could have been stolen.

The company's IT director, David H. Jones, said the company is investigating how the secure information was accessed.

The company urged customers affected to contact their banks and change passwords on their online accounts.

Jones said he believes the breach was a one-time incident.
