Major retailer, Michael's says a security breach at it's stores lasted 8 months and affected about 3 million customers.

The news comes 3 months after the largest US crafts chain told customers it learned of a possible hack.  It's been investigating since then. 

Some credit and debit card numbers and expiration dates were compromised but the company said there is no evidence that information such as customer's names  or pins were stolen.

The breach affected about 7% of card transactions at it's stores from early May to late January.
