A Message from Hannaford President and CEO Ron Hodge

Dear Customer:

Recently, Hannaford announced what security experts tell us was a novel and sophisticated attack on our computer network that resulted in the theft of certain credit and debit card numbers. I want to apologize for the concern and inconvenience this has caused you.

We have stopped this theft and brought in top security experts to help us guard against any further attacks.

Meanwhile, we want to remind customers:

* If you used a debit or credit card at Hannaford between December 7, 2007 and March 10, 2008, your card number may have been exposed. No personal data such as names or addresses were accessed or obtained.

So more creditcard information stolen again. and he says "We have stopped this theft and brought in top security experts to help us guard against any further attacks."
But shouldn't they have a security experts when there dealing with that many creditcards a month. Let me guess he decided the Ebay way is just don't make a big deal out of it and its not a problem and he thought it works good for them so why not do the same.

Credit Card Security
A Message from Hannaford President and CEO Ron Hodge


Here's their Customer Questions & Answers section pertaining to the breach. It reads more as an FAQ than actual questions and answers. Quite corporate CYA-like.


What happened?
Hannaford announced containment of a data intrusion into its computer network that resulted in the theft of customer credit and debit card numbers. This data was illegally accessed from Hannaford's computer systems during the card verification transmission process in transactions. Further, Hannaford is cooperating with credit and debit card issuers to ensure those customers who may be affected by the theft are protected.



When did you discover the intrusion?
Hannaford was first made aware of suspicious credit card activity on Feb. 27, and immediately initiated a comprehensive investigation with the assistance of leading computer security experts.
