Credit card breach at national grocery chain

If you shop at Natural Grocers, then hackers may have your credit card information. Or that's what sources in the financial industry have reported to cybersecurity journalist Brian Krebs, at least.

In response to Krebs's attempt to verify these claims, the grocery chain claimed that it was investigating “a potential data security incident involving an unauthorized intrusion targeting limited customer payment card data.”

The company claims that no PIN or card verification numbers were accessed. Krebs's sources disagree:

Perhaps they aren’t reporting the fraud to Natural Grocers, but banking sources have told this author about a pattern of card fraud indicating cards stolen from the retailer are already on sale in the cybercrime underground.

Based on the fact that Krebs's banking sources have traced credit card information to the Internet's criminal underground, there's probably a good chance of this credit card data being out there.
