The Rosenthal Wine Shop of Malibu, Ca., recently began notifying an undisclosed number of customers that their personal information may have been exposed when malware was installed on computer systems used to process the shop's credit card transactions.

The data potentially exposed includes the names, addresses, payment card account numbers, expiration dates and security codes of customers who made purchases at the wine shop tasting room.

"On January 23, 2014, we contained the incident by installing an advanced malware protection and eradication system, and by reformatting the systems at issue," the company wrote in a notice [PDF] provided to the California Attorney General's Office.

All customers are being advised to review their credit and debit card account statements for unusual activity, and are being provided with a free one-year membership in Experian's ProtectMyID Alert service.

Customers with questions are advised to contact (310) 899-8903.
