(update) Fraud reports climb after Broadway Grill hack

Connie Thompson of KCBY reports that the POS hack that led to card fraud  in the Capitol Hill area was a one-day intrusion on October 22nd that involved only one business (Broadway Grill). The number of reports of fraud continues to climb and may affect almost 1,000 individuals; card info was reportedly sold to others.

The hacker is believed to be overseas and investigators are also trying to determine whether the incident, which the news station somewhat hyperbolically refers to as a ‘cyber attack,’ can be linked to another incident that also occurred in the Pacific Northwest.

Hat-tip, Bob McMillan
