On or about January 21, 2014 information was released to the public, that the Oswego Sub Shop’s computers may have been compromised resulting in the unauthorized use of customers credit card information.
As a point of clarification, information received so far indicates that the possible compromise of this information may have been accomplished via an unauthorized external breach.
Therefore, it was not a matter of an internal security breach. The Oswego Sub Shop has been working diligently, in full cooperation with the United StatesSecret Service in finding the point of origin of this possible breach.
Since being notified of the possible compromise, the Management of the Oswego Sub Shop has replaced all hard drives in their Point of Sale terminals and hired experts in PCI (Payment Card Industry) Compliance to ensure that their system is and will remain secure to the highest degree.
According to Oswego City Police Chief Tory L. DeCaire,“The Management of the Oswego Sub Shop has fully cooperated in this investigation and, at this point, there is no reason to believe that the customers of the Oswego Sub Shop are at any greater risk than those at any other business that allows electronic transactions.”
