Shoppers at Michaels and Aaron Brothers may need to be wary of credit card fraud. The company reported Thursday about 2.6 million cards used at its store may have been impacted in a security breach.

Based in Irving, Texas, Michaels officials said it received "limited" reports of fraud. The nation's largest arts and crafts chain also owns Aaron Brothers.

The company said criminals using sophisticated malware targeted both stores. These details come nearly three months after Michaels said it may have been a victim of a data breach.
