A wake-up call for retailers

Earlier this month, it was reported that Information Systems & Supplies Inc. (IS&S), a food service point-of-sale (POS) and security systems provider, notified customers of a remote access breach that may have exposed card data from POS transactions.

In a letter to customers, IS&S said a LogMeIn account used by the company to remotely support customers was breached, and they have reason to believe that the data accessed could include credit card information.

The article notes, “IS&S is an independent reseller of POS products sold by software vendor Future POS Inc. Future POS customers named on IS&S's site include restaurant chains such as Dairy Queen and TacoTime.”

The POS vendor's president went on to confirm that his company's remote access credentials were compromised, possibly through a phishing attack.  Read more.
