ICG America Acknowledges Security Breach
Attackers had access to the company's payment processing system from January 2, 2013 through August 2, 2013.
ICG America, which operates several companies including Amazing Clubs, Games2U, Flying Noodle, Monster Brew, Texas Irons and California Reds, recently began notifying an undisclosed number of customers that their personal data may have been exposed (h/t Softpedia).
The company was informed by a credit card company on August 5, 2013 that it may have been targeted by a cyber attack on its payment processing system. A computer security firm determined that an attack had begun on January 2, 2013 and continued through August 2, 2013.
"The attacker installed a program on our network that created the ability to decrypt and capture payment card information from our system," ICG vice president of operations Elena Loyola wrote in the notification letter [PDF].
While the investigation wasn't able to determine whether the attacker actually accessed any data, customers' names, addresses, e-mail addresses, credit card or debit card account numbers, expiration dates and CVV codes may have been exposed.
The company isn't offering any free credit protection services to those affected -- they're simply being advised to review their account statements and credit reports for unauthorized activity.
Customers with questions are advised to contact the company at (866) 264-1050.
