7-Eleven, Inc. has learned that federal authorities in New Jersey have
indicted individuals for the theft of credit and debit card numbers in a
computer hacking scheme targeting multiple retailers in a number of separate
incidents over the last several years.
The company became aware in late 2007 that a security breach had
occurred. The affected transactions were limited to customers' use of
certain ATMs, owned and operated by a third party, located in 7-Eleven
stores over a 12-day period from October 28, 2007, through November 8, 2007.
Steps were immediately taken to contain the security breach and prevent any
Upon being notified of the breach, the card companies in accordance with
their standard fraud response procedures then alerted the issuing financial
institutions regarding the security breach. Each financial institution made
its own decision about what appropriate actions to take, including the
issuance of new cards or putting card numbers on alert for fraud. These
remedial measures were taken in late 2007 and early 2008.
7-Eleven would like to thank the federal authorities for their diligence
in pursuing the perpetrators of this crime. Because this matter is pending,
we are not providing further details.
