Supermarket chain Whole Foods Market Inc has admitted that the company suffered a major data breach through its payment card systems.
In an announcement, they revealed the breach happened through their ‘taprooms’ and full table-service restaurants inside some 40% of their stores, rather than through its checkout services.
This is significant as the company uses a separate payment system for its bars and restaurant to its grocery checkout stations, with most of their customers using the latter. Any breach involving card and banking information is, of course, incredibly serious.
