Matton, Illinois-based farm supply store Rural King has suffered a data breach. The company has been notifying its customers since the hackers gained access to their personal and financial information.
It’s uncertain how many individuals are impacted by the breach, but according to a letter sent earlier this week by the company to the New Hampshire Attorney General, cybercriminals gained access to Rural King systems on February 6, 2014.
The intrusion into the firm’s web server was detected on March 7, but it took until March 12 to completely block out the attackers. During this time, they could have stolen names, credit and debit card numbers, their expiration dates, card verification codes, phone numbers and shipping and billing addresses.
The email addresses and passwords utilized by customers to log in to their ruralking.com accounts might also have been compromised.
