OR: Credit card info stolen from Portland Center for the Performing Arts website

Marty Hughley reports:

Credit card numbers and other personal information from several hundred Portland Center for the Performing Arts customers have been stolen due to a breach of website security, the center announced Friday.

Ticket purchases for PCPA events, which are handled exclusively through Ticketmaster, were not affected. The problem was with the PCPA’s own site and records of 864 gift-card purchases from January 1, 2006 to March 15, 2011. The information accessed without authorization includes names, street and email addresses, phone and credit card numbers, card types, expiration dates and billing addresses.


An internal review determined that the breach occurred between December 20, 2010 and March 15, 2011, though Williams said the technology teams don’t yet know how the system was hacked.

PCPA sent letters of notification on Friday to the credit card holders, who, because of multiple purchases by some customers, may number fewer than 864.
