The UPS Store discovered malware... at 51 locations in 24 states (about 1%) of 4,470 franchised center locations throughout the United States.
Customers' information, who used a credit or debit card at the 51 impacted franchised center locations between January 20, 2014 and August 11, 2014, may have been exposed.
The customer information that may have been exposed includes names, postal addresses, email addresses and payment card information.
The time intervals between card data breaches are rapidly decreasing. The day is not far off when we start getting a news like this every day, or even several times a day, because there is nothing that realistically can stop hackers from breaking into the stores and point-of-sale machines. The payment card technology is insecure by design, and there is no easy and cheap solution for this problem.
