Tinos diners hit by credit card hackers, Heartland denies breach of its system

Claudia Grisales reports on the breach involving Tino’s Greek Cafe. In previous coverage elsewhere, Heartland Payment Systems had been named as the processor, but the processor denies any responsibility for this breach:

“Recent reports of data theft at one Austin-area merchant clearly point to a localized intrusion initiated within the stores, either in their point-of-sale system or as a result of other fraud,” Heartland said in a statement Thursday. The statement said the company would work with Tinos in helping identify the source of the breach and help with remediation efforts.
