Giant Food warns of potential data breach after credit card skimmer found on self-checkout

  • The grocery chain says that they learned on March 5 that an individual illegally placed a device that skims information from credit/debit cards at one of the self-check-outs.
  • After working with police and a forensic investigator, Giant says they are unable to say for sure whether any data was extracted from the device before it was found, however, no evidence was found that the extracted information was misused.
