Restaurant chains possible victims of POS data breach
Another day, another data breach, this time effecting yet unnamed restaurants in the northwestern United States.
Information & Supplies, a Vancouver, Washington-based POS and security systems provider, recently notified restaurant customers of a remote-access compromise that may have exposed credit and debit card data from POS transactions between Feb. 28 and April 18.
"We recently discovered that our LogMeIn account was breached on February 28, March 5 and April 18, 2014," said IS&S President Thomas Potter in the letter obtained by Bank Info Security. "We have reason to believe that the data accessed could include credit card information from any cards used by your customers between these dates."
Once again, the point of intrusion appears to be a third party vendor, a method similar to that used in the Target breach that compromised the credit card and personal information of more than 70 million shoppers. Read more.
