Third-party payment processor Global Payments said today that a security breach uncovered almost three weeks ago has now been contained. The significant breach, affecting possibly over 1 million accounts, has yet to produce any fraudulent transactions as far as staff are aware, said the company. The breach, thought to have occurred between the end of January and February’s end was instantly reported to both law enforcement and MasterCard and Visa, both of whom deal with the company. The credit card giants then sent non-public alerts to banks to warn them that a breach had occurred. While credit card numbers did appear to be downloaded, no other personal information, such as customer addresses or social security numbers were pilfered. Visa has removed Global Payments from its approved service provider list until the company has been able to submit evidence that it complies with the credit card company’s standards.
