WOODBURY - The FBI is warning retailers across the nation to prepare for more cyberattacks.

The warning comes after millions of Target customers had their debit and credit records stolen in a cyberattack during the holiday shopping season.

Neiman Marcus has also said more than 1 million customer cards were exposed during a data breach.

Some shoppers tell News 12 they are worried about using any of their cards.

"You feel victimized, I guess," said Wacey Benjamin, of Freeport.  "The most you can do is just hope that you get alerted when stuff like that happens and you can rectify the situation."
