More problems for Subway: Feds charge two men in plot to sell hacked Subway gift cards worth $40,000

Cyrus Farivar reports that Subway, who had previous hacking problems, has had other problems:

Two California men were charged in a case involving hacking point-of-sale (POS) computers at various Subway restaurants in a newly unsealed indictment on Friday in Boston.

The two suspects are Shahin Abdollahi, aka “Sean Holdt,” and Jeffrey Thomas Wilkinson, both of San Bernardino County, California, east of Los Angeles.

Prosecutors have accused them of hacking at least 13 such POS computers, installing a remote desktop application onto those computers which then they used to falsely load Subway gift cards totaling “at least $40,000.” They are alleged to have then sold those gift cards on eBay and Craigslist.
