Eataly reports possible POS hack

Eataly's retail location in New York City has reported a possible data breach in its POS system. The company's website warns consumers of the potential security incident, urging consumers who purchased items between Jan. 16 and April 2 at the New York City location to immediately check their bank accounts. "Based upon an extensive forensic investigation, it appears that criminals unscrupulously hacked our network system and installed a malware designed to capture payment card transaction data," according to a company statement. An investigation was officially launched after several Eataly employees, who also made purchases at the store, found fraudulent charges on their credit cards, PYMNTS reported. The malware has now been removed and security measures are in place. Story
