(Reuters) - Dow Jones & Co disclosed on Friday a breach of its systems that put payment card and contact information of about 3,500 individuals at risk.

The publisher of the Wall Street Journal said its review had not uncovered any "direct evidence" that information was stolen and that it had taken steps to stop the breach. (on.wsj.com/1Mivruj)

Based on the investigation, Dow Jones, a unit of Rupert Murdoch's News Corp, said there was unauthorized access to its systems at certain times between August 2012 and July 2015.
