NY: Credit card numbers stolen from DeCicco’s in Ardsley

Ernie Garcia reports:

Hackers stole customers’ credit card numbers from the DeCicco’s supermarket in Ardsley.

The cyber-attack is believed to have occurred around April 17 because two customers contacted the store about suspicious activity on their cards, said Danielle Thomas, DeCicco’s legal clerk. After the customers’ calls, staff in the store reported that they too had suspicious charges on their cards.

“There was a glitch in the credit card processing software that allowed hackers to access the information while it was on the way to the processor,” Thomas said on Tuesday. “The hacker was able to get the numbers on the front of the card, but not the pin numbers or expiration dates.”
