It’s another day and another hacked company! Whole Foods announced recently that hackers obtained access to their network and were able to steal credit card information of its customers. While they claimed that their primary systems for taking credit card payments were not impacted, they report systems pertaining to the taprooms, restaurants, and other service systems that are in store use a different credit card processing system. These were the ones that were infiltrated.
Whole Foods who were recently purchased by Amazon did not release the range of the impact nor which facilities were at-risk. They have hired a leading cyber security firm and are investigating.
