Montgomery Ward is an old name in the retail business, but it has been hit by a modern problem: the hacking of customers' credit card numbers.Wards went out of business six years ago, but direct marketing services bought the brand name and now runs a Wards.com Web site.

At least 51,000 customer records have reportedly been exposed to hackers.

The Associated Press reports the company did not inform consumers about the breach that happened months ago.
