Subject : Update: Credit card compromise isolated to one Roseville location
Contact : firstname.lastname@example.org
Roseville Police Department detectives investigating the compromise of hundreds of credit card numbers have isolated the problem to one Roseville restaurant, Paul Martin's American Bistro. Detectives also believe the problem was isolated to computer systems at the restaurant's site, and did not involve the external financial services network or any third-party data processing service.
It appears that unknown cyber-criminals, who could be operating from anywhere in the world, were able to access the restaurant's credit card processing system and steal credit card numbers, which were then sold to other criminals and used to make fraudulent purchases.
Paul Martin's is cooperating fully with the investigation. They have brought in computer security specialists to examine their system to confirm they have found the only breach, and to put processes in place to prevent further problems. The restaurant is open for business, and will be using alternate methods to process credit card transactions until the cyber-security team has completed their work.
"The management and staff of Paul Martin's American Bistro thank the Roseville Police Department, Secret Service and others involved in helping identify and solve the source of the data breach", stated Ben Magana, Operating Partner of the Roseville restaurant. "We are doing everything in our power to ensure that our systems are safe, secure and locked down."
