BREACH: Lost Pizza Co in North Mississippi exposed to data hack via OSINT-X Newswire

The data hack that exposed the customers of more than 216 Jimmy John's locations has also netted two Lost Pizza Company locations, both in North Mississippi.

Credit card authorization and point-of-sale technology company Signature Systems, Inc. recently revealed that the customer data at 216 Jimmy John’s stores and 108 other restaurant locations including the Lost Pizza Co. locations in Tupelo and Southaven, Mississippi, had been exposed by cyber criminals.

"We have determined that an unauthorized person gained access to a user name and password that Signature Systems used to remotely access POS systems," a statement on Signature Systems website said. "The unauthorized person used that access to install malware designed to capture payment card data from cards that were swiped through terminals in certain restaurants. The malware was capable of capturing the cardholder’s name, card number, expiration date and verification code from the magnetic stripe of the card."
