Yet Another US Giant Is Hacked
CVS, a large chain of pharmacies in the United Stares is the latest in a long line of major corporations to have their systems compromised.
They offer an online photo service and it appears from reports that their systems have been hacked and card details of customer stolen in the latest attack by hackers. Precautionary measures were put into effect and their online photo service, provided by an external organisation, was temporarily suspended. CVS had confirmed that the hack had not compromised their usual business of drug dispensary and reassured their customers it was solely isolated to this external breach.
