State Park Pass Purchasers' Info Exposed
DATA LOSS—U.S.March 25, 2011
Individuals who purchased their Maine State Parks passes online last year may have had their credit card information breached, WCSH6 reports, as the California-based company the state used for the purchases suffered a malware attack between March 21 and December 22 of last year. The Maine Department of Conservation has sent out notices to 970 credit cardholders in Maine, although a spokesperson has said "it was up to the vendor to notify all the cardholders who might have used the site." To date, there have been no reports of fraudulent charges. The spokesperson said the Web page has been removed, and "we're working with another vendor to create a better, safer site."
