Whole Foods PoS hacked, customer payment info stolen

Whole Foods Market has announced that payment card information of its customers were subjected to unauthorised access at certain taprooms and full table-service restaurants.

The breached point of sale system in use at the affected venues of Whole Foods Market is different from primary store checkout systems.

Whole Foods Market, which was recently acquired by Amazon for $13.7 billion, has hired a leading cyber security forensics firm to investigate the breach and has also informed law enforcement agencies.
