Here’s the next hack you need to be aware of! WaWa Say it’s not so! WaWa has disclosed a data breach potentially affecting all of its 850 locations. The breach stemmed from malware on its in-store payment processing systems that collected customers’ payment card data – for almost 10 months.
In a data-breach notice, the company said that the malware first infected in-store payment processing systems after March 4, and had infected most store systems by April 22.
“As soon as we discovered this malware on December 10, 2019, we took immediate steps to contain it, and by December 12, 2019, we had blocked and contained it,” according to the data breach notice.“We believe this malware no longer poses a risk to customers using payment cards at Wawa…we engaged a leading external forensics firm to conduct an investigation, which has allowed us to provide the information that we are now able to share in this letter. We are also working with law enforcement to support their ongoing criminal investigation.”
