Barnes & Noble customers should be closely watching their credit card statements following a recent hacker attack on the bookseller. According to reports, shoppers' credit card information was compromised at 63 locations across the country.

The company confirmed that the breach was first noticed on Sept. 14, but kept the findings to themselves as per a recommendation from the Justice Department, so the FBI could investigate.

The retailer revealed that hackers were able to break in to keypads that sit alongside registers where customers use the POS station. Following the attacks, Barnes & Noble removed all of the more than 7,000 keypads in use at all locations and sent them to a company for further investigation.

Barnes & Noble is recommending that customers who shopped at any of the 63 targeted stores should change their PIN numbers and monitor their accounts for suspicious activity.
