Kmart Data Breach
A breach has now been confirmed by Kmart. This message was posted on the Kmart Website:

"On Thursday, Oct. 9, 2014 our IT team detected that our Kmart store payment data system had been breached and immediately launched a full investigation working with a leading IT security firm. The security experts report that beginning in early September, the payment data systems at Kmart stores were purposely infected with a new form of malware (similar to a computer virus). This resulted in debit and credit card numbers being compromised.

Based on the forensic investigation to date, no personal information, no debit card PIN numbers, no email addresses and no social security numbers were obtained by those criminally responsible. There is also no evidence that kmart.com customers were impacted."


Albertsons Data Breach
Albertsons announced on August 14, unauthorized access to credit and debit card data in its stores in
Southern California, Idaho, Montana, North Dakota, Nevada, Oregon, Washington, Wyoming and Southern Utah.


UPS Store Data Breach
UPS Stores, Inc. announced on August 21, the presence of malware on computer systems at 51 locations in 24 states, including four locations in California: Campbell, Orange, Pleasant Hill, and Sacramento.


Goodwill Data Breach

An investigation at Goodwill Industries has confirmed that a third-party vendor's systems were attacked by malware, enabling criminals to access certain payment card data of a number of the vendor's customers. The impacted Goodwill members used the same affected third-party vendor to process credit card payments. Each of the impacted Goodwill members took immediate action to ensure that the malware found on the third-party vendor's systems no longer presents a threat to individuals shopping at the affected Goodwill members' stores.

23 locations in Northern California were impacted in the Sacramento region.
