If you have used Wawa’s convenience stores and gas stations at any time from from March 4 until December 12, 2019, your name, credit card number(s), and other personal information are already known to numerous hackers.
On Monday, hackers put up for sale the payment card details of more than 30 million Americans and over one million foreigners on Joker’s Stash, the internet’s largest carding fraud forum.
Wawa said the malware collected card details for all customers who used credit or debit cards to buy goods at their convenience stores and gas stations. The company said the breach impacted all its 860 convenience retail stores, of which 600 also doubled as gas stations.
This is one of the biggest card breaches known to date.
