PCI DSS? Never Heard of IT!!

"Hackers broke into a Merrimack [New Hampshire -Ed.] movie theater's servers and stole customers' credit card information, police said Wednesday.

"Investigators said that after receiving numerous reports of fraudulent use of credit cards, police determined that a majority of the victims used their credit cards over the summer and early fall at a Zyacorp Entertainment Cinemagic Stadium movie theater in Merrimack.

"Police and the Secret Service determined that a security breach was made into the company's server, allowing someone access to customers' information. The server has since been replaced, and new security measures put in place, police said.

"There was no indication how many customers' may have had their credit card information stolen."
