+ - Data theft by malware at U.S. grocery-store chains->

Submitted by 3t3rn4l
3t3rn4l (204282) writes "The Wall Street Journal and others report that U.S. grocery-store chains Hannaford and Sweetbay experienced data theft between Dec. 7, 2007 and March 10, 2008. It took a team of 30 forensic experts and IT ten days of around-the-clock troubleshooting to discover the malware. The company has said as many as 4.2 million credit and debit-card numbers were exposed in the breach and the theft occurred as shoppers swiped their cards at the chains' checkout machines and the information was sent to a transaction processor for approval."
