Data Breaches

BevMo e-commerce customers hit by data Breach


Alcohol retailer BevMo has revealed California Attorney General’s office that their website has been affected by a data breach which resulted in compromising the credit card details of almost 15,000 customers.

BevMo is a California-based alcoholic beverage retailer which provides e-commerce platform for their customers to buy products online and get them delivered to their address. They also operate stores located throughout California, Arizona, and Washington state.

NCR Corp manages the website and they have found a malicious code inserted at the checkout page by an attacker who managed to attain access clearing all the customers details such as names, credit or debit card numbers, expiration dates, CVV2 codes, billing addresses, shipping addresses and phone numbers.

The company reported that the code which had captured any details entered regarding the orders placed between Aug. 2 and Sept. 26 has been removed.

They have not published any official warning or statement regarding the issue and so the people who had their credentials stolen have not been notified yet. However, the company claims that they have alerted law enforcement and credit card companies.

Any customer who have purchased anything from BevMo between August and September last year is likely that your credit card information may have gone into wrong hands. Notify your bank in case you find any suspicious activity on your card.
