Goodwill Industries – Breached

In early September, Goodwill Industries confirmed that a data breach in 330 of its stores may have compromised an estimated 868,000 debit and credit cards. Payment card information, such as names, payment card numbers and expiration dates, may have been compromised. However, personal information such as addresses and PIN numbers were not affected. According to their investigation, a third-party vendor’s systems were attacked by malicious software, enabling criminals to access some payment card data of a number of the vendor’s customers. The impacted Goodwill stores used the same affected third-party vendor to process credit card payments.
