American Cancer Society Compromised

TechCrunch is reporting that the online store for the American Cancer Society has fallen victim to a credit and debit card stealing malware. The cyber-criminals steal the credit/debit card information and then sell them on the darkweb. TechCrunch states the malware infection took place sometime in the last week or so. If anyone made a purchase with the American Cancer Society, it is important to reach out to your financial institutions for next steps.

When a third party is compromised, it makes things tricky and difficult to protect your own data. Staying up to date on current breaches is critical in protecting data. In this case, if you know you made a recent purchase to a compromised website, it is important for you to act before the cybercriminals act on your behalf.
