Submission + - Credit Card Numbers are Stolen from USC Food Stores (

maratumba writes: Yesterday, students of University of Southern California got an email saying that "The university recently identified a security breach affecting credit card purchases made at food outlets on the USC University Park and Health Sciences campuses." Apparently a third party software system used in transactions in some dining halls has been breached between the period May 21st — June 21st and possibly earlier. They can't tell which card numbers have been compromised because of privacy reasons. They recommend the students to keep an eye on their credit card statements.
