Hy-Vee warns about security problem with credit card readers

Friday 16 August 2019 | 12:21 PM CET

Hy-Vee, an US-based grocery store chain, has warned customers about a security incident involving payment card systems.

Hy-Vee said in a news release that it launched an investigation after it detected unauthorised activity on some of its payment processing systems – activity that the company thinks has stopped.

The investigation focused on card payments at Hy-Vee restaurants, fuel pumps and drive-thru coffee shops. Company officials think the problem doesn't involve payments systems used inside its grocery stores, drugstores, and convenience stores. They use encryption technology for processing card transactions. Hy-Vee intends to notify customers when it can share specific timeframes and locations that may have been involved.

The company operates more than 240 retail stores in eight Midwestern states: Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, South Dakota, and Wisconsin.
