Good morning...... Or afternoon, or whatever part of the day you're living in.
As it stands right now, there is absolutely NOTHING *Zip Zero Zilch* in the news regarding this, which is extremely messed up, and the main reason I
am posting this. MODS, do with this what you will, as there is no current source for this other than second-hand knowledge, yet it doesn't really
qualify as a "Conspiracy" or something to go into the Skunkworks or HOAX bin.
For obvious reasons, I'm not going to state what my name is or what my wife's name is, to ensure her continued employment (she does have a really good
job) but I AM going to state a current major issue going on at Busch's Grocery store.
Apparently, as of sometime yesterday, Busch's - which is a continuously growing grocery store exclusive to the midwest, has had their computer systems
hacked by an unknown party. This unnamed hacker has demanded a large dollar amount ransom in order to release the system form their control.
From what I'm understanding right now since they aren't a national chain, is they are opting to simply give up their system and start from scratch, as
opposed to pay any sort of ransom - apparently, the cost of the ransom is more expensive than the cost of a new system being installed.
The main point I'm trying to get across is primarily to our local members who have ever shopped at this grocery store: their system includes your
Credit card and debit card information. If you've worked there recently, your SS number is stored, possibly with your bank information if you have
direct deposit set up. If you have one of their rewards cards, your personal information such as your address, email, etc., is also within their
system as well; Essentially all of your personal information is being held by a hacker and could be released at any time.
Just thought I would pass the word along, seeing how Buschs' has yet (to my knowledge) contacted any law enforcement, FBI, or anything like that.
Literally, I've been hearing about it for two days, the store that my wife works at has been in panic mode (amongst the employees) and not a single
peep has been said by the company.
