    The TJX Companies, a large retailer that operates more than 2,000 retail stores under brands such as Bob Banking officials in Massachusetts say the TJX breach is behind a recent warning by Visa to banks in Massachusetts, which have contacted customers in recent days and had to reissue thousands of ATM and debit cards. In the end, the hack may affect a wide range of credit card companies and thousands of consumers in America and in countries like the United Kingdom and Ireland, experts say. TJX said it is working with IBM and General Dynamics to investigate the breach, which is believed to have occurred on computer systems that process and store information on customer transactions for T.J. Maxx, Marshalls, HomeGoods and A.J. Wright. Transactions from T.K. Maxx in the United Kingdom and Ireland may have also been exposed in the breach.
