MAPCO is warning customers their credit or debit card information may have been hacked due to, “a security breach by third-party hackers that may have compromised the credit/debit card information.”

According to the MAPCO website, “Stores include MAPCO Express®, MAPCO Mart®, East Coast®, Discount Food Mart™, Fast Food and Fuel™, Delta Express®, and Favorite Markets® locations in Tennessee, northern and central Alabama, Arkansas, northern Georgia, Kentucky, northern Mississippi, and Virginia.”

The hacking happened in March and April, “Third party hackers used malware to access the payment card processing systems in our stores between March 19-25, April 14-15, and April 20-21, 2013.  These systems transmit certain card information needed for the approval of transactions.  The hackers may have stolen information that could potentially be used to initiate fraudulent credit and debit card transactions.”

The company says it is working with the FBI’s Joint Cyber Crime Task Force.

If you think your information was compromised, you should immediately contact the bank/company associated with the card.
