On March 19, 2008, the law firm of Berger & Montague, PC
(http://www.bergermontague.com) filed a class action suit in the U.S.
District Court for the District of Maine on behalf of all consumers in the
United States whose credit card or debit card data was stolen from the
computer network of Hannaford Brothers Co. ("Hannaford") supermarkets.
The complaint alleges that Hannaford was negligent for failing to maintain
adequate computer data security of customer credit and debit card data,
which was accessed and stolen by a computer hacker.
On March 17, 2008, Hannaford announced on its website that there was a
"data intrusion into its computer network that resulted in the theft of
consumer credit and debit card numbers." The stolen data included "credit
and debit card numbers and expiration dates," which were accessed from
Hannaford's computer system "during transmission of card authorization."
The intrusion affected all Hannaford stores located throughout the North
Eastern U.S., as well as Sweetbay stores in Florida.
Published news reports indicated that 4.2 million unique credit and debit
card numbers have been exposed to potential fraud. To date, there have
been approximately 1,800 cases of reported credit and debit card fraud
stemming from the breach.
