Barnes & Noble Customer Credit Card Data Stolen

submitted on October 24, 2012 by YanBz in "Stores / Merchants"
Keypads in 63 stores were tampered with and credit card data stolen as the purchases were made. Online purchases are not affected. The stores are in California, Connecticut, Florida, Illinois, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania and Rhode Island.

We have detected a sophisticated criminal effort to steal credit and debit card information from our customers who have swiped their cards through PIN pads when they made purchases at certain retail stores. The tampered devices were capable of capturing information such as name, card account number, and PIN.


Here is the press release:
