A popular retail pharmacy giant may have had its online photo services compromised by a hacker leaving its customers at risk for being cyber crime victims. CVS is telling its customers that their credit card info may have been compromised through their vendor that manages and operates CVSphoto.com. They’ve taken steps to shut down the site, launch an investigation and advise customers to take next steps to monitor their credit accounts.
See their statement below:
“We have been made aware that customer credit card information collected by the independent vendor who manages and hosts CVSPhoto.com may have been compromised. As a precaution, as our investigation is underway we are temporarily shutting down access to online and related mobile photo services. We apologize for the inconvenience.
Customers who provided credit card information for transactions on CVSPhoto.com are advised to check their credit card statements for any fraudulent or suspicious activity and to call their bank or financial institution to report anything of concern.
Customer registrations related to online photo processing and CVSPhoto.com are completely separate from CVS.com, optical.cvs.com, cvs.com/MinuteClinic on line bill pay and our pharmacies. Financial transactions on CVS.com, optical.cvs.com, cvs.com/MinuteClinic and in-store are not affected.
Nothing is more central to us than protecting the privacy and security of our customer information, including financial information. We are working closely with the vendor and our financial partners and will share updates as we know more.
For more information, call 1-800-SHOP-CVS.”
