Best Buy Hacked By Employee With USB Drive

"An employee at Best Buy's 1880 Palm Beach Lakes Blvd in West Palm Beach, Florida allegedly stole credit card information during November and December 2008 using an unauthorized personal device. Best Buy learned of the theft on Jan. 5, 2009. With the cooperation and assistance of store management, the employee was identified and taken into federal custody by the Secret Service on Jan. 7, 2009. That person is no longer employed by Best Buy.

"Although none of Best Buy's electronic systems were compromised by this former employee's actions, Best Buy believes that approximately 4,000 people could have been affected by this former employee's unlawful skimming of customer credit card information. State and federal law enforcement authorities and all relevant payment card brands have been notified of the incident and Best Buy is fully cooperating with all investigations."
