POS Machine Vendor Warns of Possible Payment Card Breach at Restaurants

POS Machine Vendor Warns of Possible Payment Card Breach at Restaurants

Thursday, July 03, 2014 

 

 

Due to the better track inventory and accuracy of records, Point-of-sale (POS) systems are being used in most of the industries including restaurants, lodging, entertainment, and museums around the world. It can be easily set-up depending on the nature of the business.
 
Despite that, Point-of-sale (POS) systems are critical components in any retail environment and users are not aware of the emerging threats it poses in near future. So, it is one of the apparent target for cybercriminals and the recent security breach at Information Systems & Suppliers (ISS) proves this.
 
Information Systems & Suppliers (ISS) Inc., the vendor of point-of-sale (POS) electronic cash registers and security systems used by restaurants including Taco Bell and Dairy Queen, has warned its customers that it may have experienced a payment card breach.
 

Kind Regards,

The following article is a update on Breach at Restaurants

(PoS Vendor Breach Affects Over 300 Restaurant Locations)

By Eduard Kovacs on September 29, 2014

 

A data breach suffered by Signature Systems, a company that provides point-of-sale (PoS) services for restaurants, has affected hundreds of Jimmy John's stores and other establishments.

Last week, sandwich restaurant chain Jimmy John's reported that some of its customers' credit and debit card data was compromised after a malicious actor stole login credentials from the company's PoS vendor and used them to remotely access PoS systems at 216 stores. The attackers reportedly had access to payment systems between June 16, 2014 and September 5, 2014.

Jimmy John's did not name the vendor in its statement, but Brian Krebs, who first broke the news back in July, learned that it was Signature Systems, a firm based in Newtown, Pennsylvania. In a notice published on its website last week, Signature Systems admitted that they were the ones responsible for the Jimmy John's incident
