UPS Store Suffers Computer Breach
UPS has revealed that computer systems located at UPS Store retail outlets have suffered a breach, which may have resulted in the exposure of names, postal and e-mail addresses, and payment-card data. Malware was the cause of the computer breach, as it was found at 51 UPS Store locations spanning 24 states. Although it is not currently known just how many customers may have been affected by the computer breach, the company has narrowed down the risk of information loss to UPS Store customers who used a credit or debit card at affected locations from January 20, 2014, through August 11, 2014.
Chelsea Lee, a UPS Store spokeswoman, revealed that one year of identity protection and credit monitoring programs are being offered at no charge to customers who may have been affected.
