North Country Business Products (NCBS) is a Minnesota-based point-of-sale systems provider. With over 16 locations and over 6,500 customer sites, NCBS delivers and supports complex technology solutions for retail and hospitality customers nation-wide.
Last month, NCBS revealed that 135 business partner restaurants were infected with malware that hackers used to steal debit and credit card data from partners' customers. Information such as the cardholder names, card numbers, card expiration dates, and CVV numbers were compromised.
In a statement, NCBS wrote, "On January 4, 2019, North Country learned of suspicious activity occurring within certain client networks. North Country immediately launched an investigation, working with third-party forensic investigators to determine the nature and scope of the event.” The attack affected patrons who used their debit and credit cards between January 3 and January 24, 2019 at restaurants in Arizona, Minnesota, California, Colorado, Iowa, Louisiana, Michigan, Missouri, North Dakota, Ohio, Oregon, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, and Wisconsin.
NCBS confirmed it has contained the situation. Additionally, the company has enlisted the help of third-party experts to strengthen its systems and bolster security efforts.
