Dixons Carphone Plc said a cyberattack affected nearly 6 million payment cards as hackers sought unauthorized access to customers' personal data.
According to a statement made by the company, the security breach was discovered during a recent review of the company's systems and data.
It said an investigation, which started last week, indicated there was an attempt, going back to July previous year, to compromise data on 5.9 million credit cards in one of the processing systems of Currys PC World and Dixons Travel stores.
It added that its investigation had also found that hackers accessed non-financial personal data - such as name, address or email details - for 1.2 million customer records.
These figures make it one of the largest data breaches involving a United Kingdom company, emerging just weeks after the GDPR data-protection legislation came into effect.
The hacking represents a further blow to the company following a series of profit warnings since last summer amid tough trading for its mobile phone arm.

The group said that, while 5.8 million of the payment cards targeted were protected by chip and pin, around 105,000 non-EU cards without chip and pin protection were compromised.
