UPS Store Warns of Data Breach
Friday, August 22, 2014 6:35 AM

Just days ago we learned of a Community Health Systems Data Breach, and now UPS Store is warning consumers who used a credit or debit card at the stores between Jan. 20 and Aug. 11 that they may have been exposed to a malware identified in the company's systems at the locations.

UPS said that the hacking had escaped detection at stores in 24 states, or around 1 percentof its locations. At most stores the malware attack occurred after March 26, and was eliminated by Aug. 11. No fraud has yet been discovered, UPS said, but customer names, postal addresses, email addresses and payment card information were compromised.

The company listed the affected locations on its website. Two of the stores are in Texas and One in Oklahoma.

In the Aug. 20 issue of the Leaguer, Idrees Rafiq, Jr., assistant vice president of information technology for Credit Union Resources, shared insight on how credit unions can protect themselves against data breaches. Click here to access that article.
