IL: Credit card data stolen at city garages; remote access tool used to inject malware

Bill Smith reports:

Parking service provider SP Plus says its equipment at Evanston’s three downtown municipal parking garages was hacked to steal credit card data from drivers.

In a statement issued today, SP Plus says that the three Evanston garages, along with 10 more in Chicago and four in other cities, were affected by the security breach.

It says its payment card vendor notified it early this month that an unauthorized person had used that company’s remote access tool to connect to computers that process payment cards in the garages and install malware on the systems to steal the card data.
