America's Thrift Stores reports card data breach

Charity shop chain America's Thrift Stores has become the latest hacking victim after crooks planted malware at a third-party service provider and stole payment card numbers.

In a statement, the for-profit outfit which supports Christian ministries, confirmed the attack, which appears to have come from crooks in Eastern Europe.

Customers who bought items at any of America's Thrift's 18 stores in America's south during September may have had their card numbers and expiration dates stolen, according to the US Secret Service.

Following an investigation by an independent forensic expert, the malware has been removed and "shoppers can feel confident using credit or debit cards at any of our store locations," says the statement.
