Hackers jam Smucker's customers' data

Hackers jam Smucker's customers' data

Smucker's has closed the door to its online shop after notifying customers that their names, addresses, email addresses, phone numbers, and credit card numbers along with their expiration dates and verification codes have been stolen by hackers.

From Krebs on Security:

Jam and jelly maker Smucker’s last week shuttered its online store, notifying visitors that the site was being retooled because of a security breach that jeopardized customers’ credit card data. Closer examination of the attack suggests that the company was but one of several dozen firms — including at least one credit card processor — hacked last year by the same criminal gang that infiltrated some of the world’s biggest data brokers.

Smucker’s alerts Website visitors.

As Smucker’s referenced in its FAQ about the breach, the malware that hit this company’s site behaves much like a banking Trojan does on PCs, except it’s designed to steal data from Web server applications.
