Original post from SC Magazine

Alcohol retailer BevMo disclosed to the California Attorney General’s office that its website was breached, compromising the credit card data of nearly 15,000 customers.

The website is managed by NCR Corp., which discovered a “malicious code” placed on the checkout page by an unauthorized individual who gained access, siphoning customers’ names, credit or debit card numbers, expiration dates, CVV2 codes, billing addresses, shipping addresses and phone numbers.

BevMo, which besides selling via e-commerce also operates stores located throughout California, Arizona, and Washington state, reported that NCR removed the code, which captured details for orders placed between Aug. 2 and Sept. 26.

A third-party forensics firm not identified assisted BevMo with the investigation. The company said it alerted law enforcement and credit card companies.

The retailer’s website is labeled as “insecure,” and contains no notice to visitors of that their data might have been compromised.
