Data breach may have affected 50 Arizona businesses in January
PHOENIX — A national point of sale system company said Tuesday that a data breach may have affected 50 hotels and restaurants across Arizona this past month.
North Country Business Products said an investigation of “suspicious activity” led to the discovery that an unauthorized party deployed malware to numerous businesses it serves.
The outside party potentially had access to credit and debit card information of consumers who patronized certain restaurants and hotels between Jan. 3 and Jan. 24.
Those businesses included Holiday Inn, Zipp’s Sports Grill and Someburros in cities that encompassed metropolitan Phoenix, Flagstaff, Tucson and Yuma.
The issue has since been corrected, but customers are encouraged to review account statements for signs of identity theft and fraud.
Anyone who thinks their information has been compromised can contact 1-877-204-9537. A full list of the affected stores can be found here.
