Batteries.com Credit Card Data Stolen


Yet another data breach involving theft of credit card data has been announced. On March 13th, Batteries.com received notice from a customer about potential unauthorized activity on their credit card. They later discovered the Batteries.com network had been breached from around February 25, 2009 to April 9, 2009. The breach involved theft of names, addresses, and credit card information.

This breech at Batteries.com shows that a merchant does not need to be large like Heartland to be targeted by hackers.

    Well I had to get a new Visa after my card number started turning up in England on June 7 after a batteries.com purchase. What a freakin’ waste of my time to update the card due to the incompetent morons at batteries.com.
