BREACH: ACME financial data breach at NJ stores via OSINT-X Newswires UPDATED 3:42PM EST

Malicious software installed on ACME Markets networks in late August or earlier this month may place financial data of shoppers at risk, according to 6ABC.

Stores in Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey and Pennsylvania were potentially affected, according to ACME's website.

"Based on the information we currently know, it is not believed that any customer data was stolen. However, out of an abundance of caution, if you used your credit or debit card in a potentially affected store between June 22, 2014 and July 17, 2014 or between August 27, 2014 and September 21, 2014, you should monitor your credit and debit card account and promptly contact the bank that issued your payment card if you see suspicious activity," according to the company.

Stolen data may include names, account numbers, expiration dates or other numerical information. However, social security numbers, birth dates or driver’s license information was not affected because "that information is not collected as part of the payment process," according to the company.


This Sounds Familiar: Albertsons, Jewel-Osco, ACME, Shaw's Hit By Second Credit Card Data ...
When someone wrote me to say there was a data breach at the company behind several major supermarket chains — including Albertsons, Jewel-Osco, ACME, Star Markets, and Shaw’s — I thought, “That happened about six weeks ago, didn’t it?” Alas, the company has announced it is the victim of a new, separate attack.

SuperValu, Inc.
Cub Foods
Jewel Osco, Shaw's
Star Market

Acquisition LLC
